Parents' Biggest Mistakes
Do you worry that your parenting decisions may be scarring your child for life? Dr. Phil has advice on how to move past your mistakes and lead your family.

Lena's 12-year-old son, Richard, was abused by his father, and she worries every day what will happen when his dad gets out of jail in July.

Tammy's 13-year-old daughter gets suspended from school, steals and may be in a gang. Tammy admits that she yells and screams at her daughter and blames her for the family's problems.

Sarah's 3-year-old daughter, Jessica, can't stop telling everyone how pretty she is — even total strangers! Sarah wants her child to be confident without being arrogant.

Peggy says she is a complete failure at the only dream she ever had — motherhood. Her 15-year-old son, Kyle, talks back, gets bad grades and has become morbidly obese.moreless
