    Why is he shaming a grown woman for going out and meeting people online? Like everyone does it now days and yes there is still risks and danger to it, there always will be. But like she is an adult who can make her own choices about that. Also I remember when the video of her blowing up came online, I thought it was creative way to punish your kid, but then again my mom always went through my stuff when I was grounded. Even if it was for talking back to her. So it may just be me but I don't think this woman should have to apologize for getting fed up with her daughter and her daughter's actions. Yes, there could have been other methods of punishment that she could have done. She could have just called up the other kids parents and tell them privately (not sure if she did so) or she could have stripped her childs room of everything and routinely checked and searched it for electronics and other things. There are so many other options to choice from when parenting. But she picked this route and that is okay. Shes the mother not anyone else.

          This girl takes for granted having parents that care about her.

              You guys are so sensitive. Dr. Phil does NOT shame kids, he helps them get back on track. He is absolutely right to tell parents not to
              publicly shame their kids.

                  Dr. Phil might be off base here. I would rather the girl be embarrassed and come to her senses like she clearly has than to have a grown man potentially take her control and rape her. That consent could go away. If she had ended up pregnant, everyone would have been on her daughter, not the boyfriend. Even now,we don't know who the boyfriend was. Society is always harder on women.

                    I did the same exact things that the girl did and I'm sure the mom doesn't know of much much more shes doing. Idk how I would react if my mom did that probably would of hated her but in the long run thank her. I regret many bad things I did because I now realize how I risked my life so much and worried her alot. U just see things so different at a young age so I applaud the lady for trying to stop that girl👍

                        I think she shouldn't have harassed other people's children like that but I agree with her being upset. The sexually active thing I understand why shes upset but u can't do anything about it really. Might as well provide her with protection and educate her because clearly the abstinence idea didn't work

                                  Dr. Phil reprimand the mom for her actions but for me the mom just did it right, actually she was still lenient for doing that. Too sad you barely see this kind of parents here in the west that why kids here are very outrageous 😂🤣 for me Asian parenting is still the best!!!! 👍🏻😆

                                    Her mom is a sicko who abuses her authority as a parent. Wont surprise me if her kid ends up hating her later

                                          So Dr. Phil just talks to situational stresses that He feels is correct for that show. Because this feels very hypocritical. So now the child is right and the parent is wrong. But let the teen go out of control..." What have you been doing as her mother?!" 🙄🙄

                                                          Maybe it took shaming her daughter to fix her up 🤷‍♀️ don’t disagree with what she did

Cos she's just a teen that probably follow the media trope of teenage girl x man and his praise. Usually typically "so mature". And ofc teens like this cos they always seem to be treated as a child yet expect to act like an adult.

My mother woulda done 100 times worse than this and she never woulda looked back or apologized
