Dr. Phil: Nothing Positive Can Come From Leanna And Erica’s Behavior
Leanna and Erica, Don’s lying daughters who were arrested for underage stripping and an array of other crimes, came under fire from their older sister, Shannon, who says that no one even knows who they are anymore because of all the lying. If you’re stripping at 17 and 18 years old, things can only get worse, said Shannon. She didn’t think anything positive could come out of the poor decisions that Leanna and Erica are making.
As for Leanna and Erica’s grandmother, she described them as “pretty little liars.” She said that they will tell you anything you want to hear just to dispel any tension that might cause trouble for them. She didn’t think that the girls are on the right track, and that Don is over his head.
Doris got on the phone and said that hearing the truth was tearing her up and that she doesn’t know how to help them anymore. According to her, the girls have said plenty of times that they want to change, but given all the strikes already against them, she doesn’t know that they will actually change.
Dr. Phil: Don’s Daughters Feel A Lack Of Support
Looking for more possible causes for this behavior, Dr. Phil asked the girls if they got along with their dad, which they said they did. However, they don’t think he knows where they are coming when they do something wrong, and they feel like there’s a lack of support of his part, and that they are just a couple of screw ups.
What Dr. Phil wanted to know most was how Don never knew that the girls were stripping. Naturally, the girls had been telling him an assortment of lies concerning their whereabouts when they were going to strip.
Dr. Phil: Erica And Leanna Get Therapy
The girls were really upset about the bullying that took place after the news hit, and Dr. Phil didn’t condone the bullying, but he also said that the girls had to understand that they can’t go out, cause problems, and then play the victim. “Quit…breaking…the law,” said Dr. Phil. When there is no law breaking, there is no room for people to judge them.
Dr. Phil extended the girls some therapy that will help them understand the consequences of their actions, which will ultimately get their lives back on track. The girls accepted the help. Hopefully, they will move past this lying.
