          Woman Claims 14-Year-Old Daughter ‘Made Us Prisoners In Our Own Home’


          April 5, 2018

          “My daughter is angry, destructive and disrespectful,” says Hallie about 14-year-old Tatum.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have a Volatile Teen, Parent or Sibling?

          Hallie says Tatum’s behavior began to spiral downhill three years ago when her baby brother passed away. Hallie says she was living on the streets doing drugs, and Tatum went to live with her parents.

          “Tatum went to five different residential programs and began meeting men off of dating websites,” Hallie says. “I knew it wasn’t going to be easy when I came home, but I never imagined it was going to be this bad. Tatum ran the house. She forced us to put double locks on the doors, deadbolts and alarm. She made us prisoners in our own home.”

          Hallie claims Tatum has also ruined Hallie’s bed by pouring milk on it and throwing dish soap on the floor causing Hallie to slip and tear her ACL.

          “All I really want is my family back, and Tatum wants no part of that and wants no part of me in her life,” Hallie says.

          In the video above, hear from Tatum’s grandmother Sherrye, who shares custody of the teen but says she will no longer let her stay in her home. Why does she say Tatum is just too dangerous to be around? And on Thursday's episode of Dr. Phil, hear from Tatum. Why does she say she behaves the way she does?
