          Why Dr. Phil Says 59-Year-Old Mom And Grandma May Be Acting Like A Rebellious Teenager


          May 15, 2018

          Teresa says she’s at odds with her daughters Charlie and Hannah and her sister, Debbie. She says that ever since her husband died and she lost more than 100 pounds, her family has been disrespectful and misinterpreted her behavior. She says they never come around to visit, but that they are sure to criticize her when she drinks, parties and dates many men.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Bad mother/daughter relationship?

          In the video above, Dr. Phil explains to the 59-year-old the difference between assertiveness and aggressiveness and how he believes her behavior toward her family stems from aggression. He also tells her that her behavior is similar to a teenager’s.

          “You don’t have to rebel; there’s nobody to rebel against,” Dr. Phil says.

          Hear why he says the many years Teresa spent as a caretaker to a sick child and husband could be contributing to her dramatic change in behavior over the last five years.

          “I don’t think that you have ever taken the time to hit the reset button and heal some of those wounds,” he continues. “I think until you resolve that, you’re going to continue a path of rebellion that’s going to lead you to pain.”
