Dr Phil: House Fire Divides Family
A recent house fire in Piqua, Ohio may have destroyed more than just a family’s belongings. Suzanne said that her sister Jennifer is an unfit mother. Jennifer grabbed the only child that wasn’t hers and ran out of the home. Jennifer said that the smoke and fire were too think for her to run upstairs and get her children out of the house.
The results were that her 16-year-old daughter Alyssa jumped out of the second story window and broke her ankle in three places. Her younger son ran back in and grabbed her younger daughter. They both got out with blisters on their hands. The whole time, Jennifer stood on the front lawn holding Alyssa’s friend’s baby.
Suzanne wants custody of the three kids. She thinks Jennifer has far too much on her plate and this is the last straw with her sister. She believes Jennifer is selfish, puts men before her kids and is too focused on kids that aren’t her own.
Dr Phil: Jennifer’s Side
Jennifer said she feels like she did everything she could. She often wonders what if she had run back in, but she blames her in the moment actions and thinks she tried. She didn’t leave Bella, Alyssa’s friend Tori’s baby.
Dr Phil: Playing Word Games
Jennifer’s problem is that she wants to twist the words. It took Dr Phil 10 minutes to get a straight answer from her. After Alyssa broke her ankle, they sent her to the hospital. The nurses admitted Alyssa and told her it was going to hurt.
Suzanne remembered her sister saying, “I can’t handle this” and leaving the room. Jennifer had to get clarification on every little detail before saying that she did leave and did say that. It was exhausting. Dr Phil told her she wasn’t going to play word games. Mothers don’t usually forget what happens to their kids, so it seems like Jennifer is hiding something.
