"16 and Removed from My Mom’s House: She is Choosing Her Sex Offender Boyfriend over Me!"
ALL-NEW! Sixteen-year-old Morgan wrote to Dr. Phil saying she was desperate for help because she felt her mother Arlene was choosing her registered sex offender boyfriend, Mark, over her, and even moved him into their house despite Morgan saying she felt uncomfortable. Morgan says she confided in her school guidance counselor about the troubles at home and the Department Of Children and Family Services quickly got involved, which resulted in Morgan moving in with her mom’s best friend, Anne, and Arlene signing over short-term guardianship – something Anne says is not enough. Arlene says Mark is absolutely not guilty of what he was convicted of and she’d never put her daughter in harm’s way. Mark says he had no intention of coming between this mother and daughter. (CTD)
