          Woman Claims Teenager Went To A Homeless Shelter As ‘Respite Care’


          October 10, 2018

          Theresa claims her 16-year-old daughter, Tessa, has set the house on fire, attacked her, assaulted her grandmother, Bonnie, and ran away from home to be with a boy she met online, which Tessa denies.

          Bad mother/daughter relationship?

          Theresa says that in the past, she has sent Tessa to live with Bonnie and placed her into voluntary foster care. She also claims that Tessa went to stay at a homeless shelter “That was basically set up as a respite care because she’s been so violent that there isn’t anywhere else for her to go.”

          How does Theresa respond when Dr. Phil asks her, “Have you given up?”
