Dr Phil: Lexi & Rita
Lexi said she learned to fight from her mom, but Rita is appalled at Lexi’s outbursts and violence. Lexi doesn’t respect authority and is destroying their lives. Since she was 10, Lexi has been smoking, punching, writing on her bedroom walls and has been taking her frustrations out in violence. She’s been sent to the principal’s office over 50 times and created a list of girls she wants to fight.
Lexi says she is angry and blames her hectic home life for her actions. Her parents are afraid she will end up in jail or worse. Lexi says that after the show she is moving out to get away from her family. Why does her mom think she’s angry? And will Dr. Phil agree? He says that Rita goes up to Lexi’s school and behaves the same way Lexi does. Rita is enabling her daughter and reinforcing the horrible behavior.
The show comes to a climax when Dr. Phil brings in professionals to take Lexi to a treatment facility for her anger. Lexi lashes out and screams that they won’t take her without a fight. Rita sits on Dr. Phil’s couch and cries.
