Very disappointed

Im very diappointed that dr phil didnt pull the parents and sister up for the way they behaved in the hotel.


This mother needs to understand that Amanda could be doing much worse things with her life, I know i've been there. My mum would not comprimise with me so i turned to drugs and abusive men. Thankfully i am now clean and we have great relationship because she stopped fighting me and let me make my mistakes and Ive learnt from them.

It is hard to let your little girl grow up but you need to be sensible you cant lock your daughter up or watch her 24/7 what you need to do is inform her about the consequenses of having sex and contraception and if she won't talk to you about it coz shes embarrased send her to the doctor herself. 


I can clearly see the problem the mother has, she doesnt want her little girl to have sex plain and simple. And that is what Amanda wants to do. Come on be real people do everone likes it and teens are going to do it, in Australia where I live the legal age is 16. 

If she did as I say and inform her shes got nothing to worry about in regards to unwanted pregnancy and stds


All I can say is dont try to fight teenagers all you will get is heartache.
