          Why A Woman Claims Her 26-Year-Old Daughter’s Boyfriend Is Isolating Her


          April 19, 2017

          Cheryl says she and her 26-year-old daughter, Stefanie, had a great relationship – until Stefanie started dating Michael a year-and-a-half ago. Since then, she says, Stefanie has become “very disrespectful,” and has been shutting her out of her life.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Conflict so big it needs a Dr. Phil solution?

          “Michael is isolating her and she’s spending less and less time with her family,” says Cheryl who claims Stefanie’s boyfriend is “brainwashing” her daughter. She continues, “All she wants to do is make Michael happy – but she’s making the wrong person happy.”

          Stefanie claims her mother doesn’t care about Stefanie being in relationships that aren’t with her. Cheryl denies the claim. She says she wants her daughter to find someone with whom she can have a “healthy relationship.”

          How does Cheryl respond when it’s suggested she’s been trying to manage her daughter through guilt?
