          Why A Teen Says She Wants Nothing To Do With Her Dad


          December 10, 2018

          Larissa wrote to Dr. Phil asking for help because she claims her 14-year-old daughter, Noelle, is verbally abusive and out of control. She claims that Noelle has mental health issues and says she’s exhausted from doing everything all on her own, because her ex-husband, Jared, is in “complete denial” that there’s anything wrong with their child.

          Jared says he loves his daughter but hasn’t seen her since May. “I believe 100% without a doubt that my ex-wife, Larissa, is keeping my daughter from me,” he says.

          But Noelle says she wants nothing to do with her dad. She claims the last time she saw her father, he ripped her phone out of her hands and choked her, which Jared vehemently denies.

          “I want no relationship. As far as I’m concerned he can fall off the earth,” she says.

          Why does Noelle say she resents Jared?
