John and Maribeth say they are at a loss for how to handle their 15-year-old daughter. They say the teen has run away, driven their car without a license, stolen items, and has sex, among other things. They claim that they are willing to do anything to get her back on track – but Dr. Phil challenges that.

Hear their answer in the video above.
