          ‘You’re Not Owning What You Need To Be Owning,’ Psychiatrist Tells Mom Accused Of Living In Filthy Conditions With Kids


          September 26, 2018

          Susan says that the past 14 years of her life have not been easy. She says after her husband died by suicide, she was forced to raise her three children on her own. She says she’s made many sacrifices and given everything she had to her children.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Fighting with a loved one or friend?

          Her oldest daughter, Taylor, claims that’s not true. She claims her mom made her life a living hell. She claims they lived in houses filled with feces, garbage, dirty dishes and pantries that were empty. She also says they moved 16 times and were evicted from homes and lived in a homeless shelter.

          Susan calls Taylor a liar and denies living in filth.
