(Original Air Date: 09/23/09) From balancing work and family to changing diapers and attending soccer games, being a mom is a challenging job. Dr. Phil has advice for women who feel overwhelmed. Erica has four kids under age 7 and says she's fed up with being a mother. She says she has no time to herself, she's tired of the tantrums, and some days she just wants to get in her car and drive off! Can the harried mom gain control of her children … and her life? Then, 15-year-old Katie says she wants to have a child by the time she's 20. She even dreams of having 10 to 12 kids one day! What's behind the teen's obsession? Will spending a day with Erica give Katie a wake-up call? Plus, Dr. Phil talks with a woman who went against tradition, gave custody of her three children to their father to pursue a childhood dream of writing a book. Tell us what you think!
