Fany and her husband, Markus, say they’re at their wits’ end with Fany’s 16-year-old “party girl” daughter, Claire, who admittedly drinks, smokes marijuana and has sex with numerous partners. Fany says that recently, Claire even participated in an orgy at a party, which Fany found out about when graphic photos and a video surfaced online. Claire admits that her partying and promiscuity has earned her a reputation among her peers. How does she explain her choices? And, she opens up about the night at the party -- and the backlash she says she has experienced since. How does she feel about the decisions she made that night? Can Dr. Phil get to the root of the teen’s self-destructive behavior? And, what responsibility do Fany and Markus hold in the situation? Then, when she appeared on the show three years ago, 20-year-old Layla was heading down a dangerous path of drinking, drugs and promiscuity. How is she doing now? And, hear Layla’s message for Claire -- will it make an impact? This show contains strong sexual content. Viewer discretion advised. (OAD: 5-14-14)

Hello thank you for being SO brave to post what has happened to you here. Im so sad and sorry you have been through this in your young life my two girls are 11 and 16 . what happened to you was NOT your fault in any way shape or form and that is what every professional will tell you and please believe this because it is true. There are free councelling to help you , if you find even a womens shelter and talk with someone there they wll find the help you require. Although you might feel you can deal with it on your own (which i commend you ..great work ) what you have been through is a trauma , it is terrible abuse .. you need your body assessed for STDs or internal trauma that rape can cause. Your psycological self needs to heal and in order to do so you need professional councelling with a woman who is specialised in this area so that you may fully heal and have the life you dream off , trauma may manifest later on and you dont deserve that. please find some help. i wish you all the best ok ..you CAN do this you CAN heal xx

im shocked at what you have written. Yes she was responsible for drinking, responsible for smoking marijuana ...but definately not responsible for being RAPED and yes it WAS rape because she was NOT consenting , she was passed out. NO one has the right to RAPE a person who is not consenting ? plain and simple. your answer and thoughts on this are very troubling that you are actually saying she should have been accountable for what occurred. When i was a teenager experimentig with alcohol with groups of females and males nothing like this ever occurred to anyone , if anything the males looked out for the females in the group passed out or not they wouldnt say " hey quick , heres an opportunity to take advantage of an innocent passed out by raping her ? " thats the definition of rape. even if she came to that party naked there still isnt any right to take advantage. she still gets to CHOOSE who she sleeps with promiscuis or not , drunk,stoned or whatever.

She can not be held responsible at such a delicate stage and age in her life. Someone who is well rounded , has high self esteem, self respect and high self worth does NOT act out in the ways in which she has , alongside her obvious demenour on the show she had no care for herself and did not see what is wrong with how she was acting out. To berate her for this would be wrong i think DR Phil excersised perfect caution with his interaction with this young lady.

Really? I am in Australia, and someone with that name wouldn't last five minutes here.

Several of my posts about this episode never made it to the board. That seems to happen when I don't agree with the hysterical and unrealistic rants of the female majority here that girls and women should never be held accountable for their own behaviour. In this case, Claire was largely responsible for how that party turned out for her.

This was nice. It bothers me that I see women even turning against women first and foremost in many situations. I consider myself 'humanistic' to extend beyond simple feminism since I believe the issue of our problems belong to us all. So I would only add to your comment by saying that everyone MUST begin to recognize that all people of both (or all?) sexes play a role in how we mistreat each other respectively.


Recognizing this first should be considered because we often tend to only look at how the results seem to represent people as victims/perpetrators and make one sex or the other the sole culprit and need to address. This leads us to presume that things like the fact that women more often get victimized and men to be perpetrators based on the legal outcomes (e.g. more men in jails, more women as victims of violent crimes) and falsely conclude that these situations are the clear indicators of the justice/injustices that exist. The reality is that both sexes are just as realistically guilty (and innocent) in how we treat each other. The differences often only hide the fact that indirect forms of behavior do not tend to get noticed because we do not have at present realistic means to legitimately assure specifically what or who is responsible for those things we can't put a finger on. If we were able to assertain all actual factors in abuses and neglect, we'd discover that just as many abuses and victimization occur on an evenly spread spectrum between the sexes and to things like class, religion, politics, and ethnicities.


So, in support of this comment I'm responding to, girls/women need to stop picking on other women differently than they do with men too because you only support helping to foster more discrimination that aids to making women receive more overt violence. Often, it is the indirect and apparently mundane means of behaviors which gives the strongest motivating force behind those who act out more violently.

Why are you afraid? Your a smart healthy woman who likes sex. what is wrong with that ?   Good sex is amazing middling sex is still good. Bad sex is bad sex. Boring is the worst. Your in your 40,s ?  Keep it from your kids and enjoy.

My heart breaks for this girl.  Yes, I see her defiance, her naivity, her recklessness, her bad decisions, her selfishness.  Those years are so hard.  But, more than that, I see a girl who does not see around the corner.  She just doesn't understand right now.  She has NO IDEA how those decisions will affect her later on and how the experiences will haunt her.  Those experiences will pop up in her mind on a normal day 10 years later, 15 years later, 20 years later, and it will be very difficult to get rid of them.  


Young women, FORGIVE YOURSELF for mistakes made, but do not make mistakes twice.  Life is such a learning experience, and the tests are so hard.  Forgive yourself for making the wrong choices.  Everyone makes the wrong choice at times.  Everyone.


Young women, empower YOURSELVES.    Please DECIDE THIS DAY, that you are okay with yourselves NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE ELSE HAS TO SAY.  I'm telling you that you don't have to give DAMN what anyone thinks of you.  Walk tall.  Force yourself to stay strong until that strength becomes a natural part of who you are.  When bullies spew venom at you, simply look at them with pity in your eyes and make them stand there with no one to fight but themselves.  


Find a few special friends that you have fun with, but choose friends wisely.  In this day, when people have 1,000s of Facebook "friends", find those few that you can truly trust.  You can still enjoy other people's company, but share personal information with only those closest to you.


And young women, be a sister to ALL young women.  Strength is in numbers.  Why do we enjoy tearing each other down so much?  Why wouldn't you want to raise other women up?  Why has the word "bitches" become so popular and so widely used?  It is NOT used to describe strong women - it is used to degrade them.
