Dr Phil: Victoria Stalking Nathan
19-year-old Victoria and Nathan dated for 18 months and broke up two months ago. She has since called him about 100 times a day and sent him around 1,000 text messages in a day. She parks her car outside his house and watches for him to come out every day. She braved the elements to see him.
Dr. Phil talks to Victoria about her love, Nathan. Is there something deeper fueling her love of this seemingly ordinary boy? She says there is no chance to live without Nathan.
Nathan comes out to talk about their relationship. What about him has Victoria under a spell? Could he be fueling her obsession just to play with her? Dr. Phil is pulling out life lessons from Life Code to help Victoria move on.
Dr Phil: How To Prevent Teen Love Obsessions
Kids break up and make up constantly. Dr. Phil has watched it happen many a time and has some notes that parents can apply to help their teens get over love in a healthy way.
It’s important to talk openly about their love and hold your judgements. You should set limits for their phone and internet use in order for them to earn trust and learn the benefits of a balanced relationship. Kids need to learn that a good relationship has give and take, Dr. Phil says.
In order for kids to meet new people, suggest activities that get them talking to their friends. Friends will often monitor their decisions and help them make wiser choices. Dr Phil believes that getting kids involved gives them balance and keeps kids from getting too isolated and then in too deep of a relationship.
