          ‘You’re Not Going To Force Me To Do Anything That I Don’t Want To Do,’ Says 14-Year-Old


          November 10, 2017

          Jody and Mike say they’re at their wits’ end when it comes to their daughter, Michelle. The parents claim the 14-year-old is a pathological liar, has been in trouble with the law and is a habitual runaway. They also say she is dating an 18-year-old man who they claim has harbored her when she runs away.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Is Dr. Phil your only hope?

          After speaking with Jody and Mike, Dr. Phil offers them the opportunity to send Michelle to Turn-About Ranch, a working ranch that specializes in working with teens who are oppositional, manipulative and rebellious.

          “I think you need a break from your daughter,” he tells the couple.

          When Michelle hears that she may be sent away, she doesn’t hold back. “You’re not going to force me to go there. You’re not going to force me to do anything that I don’t want to do,” she says to her parents. “I’m not going to some stupid ass ranch to sit there and do nothing, or sit there and have no friends to talk to or nothing like that. No, I’m not going to do that.”

          Will Michelle eventually agree to go? Do her parents stand firm in their decision? See what causes the teen to have a backstage meltdown on Friday’s show. Check here to see where you can watch.
