Learn what’s damaging the mother and daughter’s already rocky relationship and why Erin questions whether she wants to bond with her newest grandchild. And meet Bridget, who says the life of Leilah, Alexandra's daughter, mirrors her childhood. She reveals how her estranged mother lost custody of her when she was a little girl, as well as the child she was carrying.

I can not believe that Alexandra sits there every time and lies...she lies with every word she says. What a waste of time!  Throw her to the curb where she belongs...she doesn't want help. She just wants to be on TV. Dr. Phil has tried everything with her and she still doesn't get it....move on to someone who would appreciate the help offered!

Just so you are aware Alaxandra, those so called PERSCRIPTION drugs you are on can and WILL kill you. I had a nephew a couple years ago that was on all kinds of perscription meds, for pain and gee guess where his pain was? IN HIS BACK.. His pain specialist kept giving him all kinds of medications and two years ago he DIED of a over dose. He did not over dose himself he was taking what the Drs. said to take and it KILLED him he was only 30 when he died. At the time of his death he had a 12 year old daughter that now has to live without her father. Although while he was on those drugs he couldn't be much of a father, but he did have custody of her and did the best he could. He had been on pain medicine for about 10 years before it took his life, and I would bet that there are alot more out there that has died for this very reason. Think about this cause you have three young children that I bet would love to have their mom in their lives. Its time to quit blaming others and take responsiblity for your children. I had three kids by the time I was 20 I was a single mom I did it myself, YES its tough YES its hard, YES you have to give up just about everything you wanted out of life, and YES YOUR KIDS SHOULD COME FIRST, but the kids didn't ask to be born. Please get the help you need to get off those perscription drugs before its to late and you end up like my nephew.

What a selfish decision to not only get pregnant with your third child you can not afford financially or emotionally and then do drugs and have the baby born addicted... Give me a break! There are many women out there( myself included) who are unable to have children, and watching people pop out kids with no regard for their welfare is infuriating. Alex, you are more than welcome to ruin your own life, but PLEASE do not bring more children into your train wreck. Dr. Phil, seriously quit wasting your time and effort on this girl, her right to be treated with compassion and concern  went out the window when she knowingly placed her unborn baby at risk by doing drugs, save your energy for those who deserve it.

I have to say that I would NOT miss the show on Mondays simply due to the family...they are for real...sometimes over the top, but nonetheless real life america people...I relate so much to Erin....she tries to be proper yet Alex can drive her over the edge...alex is the daughter that I have been struggling with for 33 years now...it doesn't end...my daughter has been an addict for so long with many recoveries only to fall off the wagon...it's so very hard to disengage from her life and to stop enabling...i would love to meet Erin...we have so much in common and the pill epidemic in our country is out of control....why are the doctors even giving these young women opiates in the first place???  My heart goes out to Erin and I just can't believe that she is now raising 3 more babies after already raising her family....

I dont disagree Alexandra is a spoiled brat, but ive been thinking alot about Erin to. Would be really funny to see her take a polygraf test, i know alexandra is lying but i really dont think erin is any better. NO mother is a saint, and normal mothers dont pretend to be. Ill bet alot on that Erin has lyed her teeth off on that show on how much shes been there for her kids, how good shes been, how much shes done. Erins "i understand, i agree dr phil i this i that" with a smiling grin every "#"¤% time is just as provocative as Alexandras "i want it my way"whining!
Theres been so many times ive been watching (sometimes over and over again) where ive been thinking: Put Erin on a polygraf, lets see if all Alexandra does is whine or if theres actually is some truth to what shes saying to.

Alexandra and Tony are spoiled brats.  Neither will make a goood parent.  Put baby #3 up for adoption.  Give the middle child to Chris.  We have never met Nathan's other parent, but, unless he wants Nathan, let Marty continue to raise Natha.   Alexandra is the most immature  diva I've ever seen on TV.  What a WHINER!

If I were even half what she is (you fill in that blank; i'm not going there anymore)...I would HOPE someone would step in and do what's best for me and especially the children I brought into this world!  I happen to firmly believe...IT TAKES A VILLAGE!  If everyone had that mentality, this world would be a much better place, to say the least!  This is America, but not the America that used to be...most people now don't even know what this country was created for, sadly!  The values and morals that used to be exist no longer.  I, in no way, am a republican or a Bible thumper or anything even remotely close to either of those things!  I'm not even 'old' either...yet I can clearly see that dignity and respect and responsibility and on and on and on are almost NON-EXISTENT now!

Thank goodness more grandparents stand up for their grandchildren. I never gave my son in law a chance or my daughter either. I got custody for 101/2 months I told them I was adopting her. Please take a stand and don't let this little girl be hurt anymore. You are a strong lady and you can do it. Fight for her with all your heart! It just makes me want to cry to see a mother defending an abuser that way. To top it off she is having another one. How dumb can she be??????????????????????????????? Have her fixed so there can't be anymore!
PLEASE
