“We are Being Terrorized by Our Violent, Car-Stealing, Drug-Using Teen Daughters"
ALL-NEW! Bill and Jen claim their life is a living hell because they live in terror of not one, but two teenage daughters: 18-year-old Emma and her 16-year-old sister, Meredith. These frustrated parents claim the girls’ behavior includes physical violence, explosive fights, spitting in Bill’s face, joyriding, taking drugs, drinking and shoplifting. Jen claims in the last two months, Emma’s violent outbursts include punching her 65-year-old grandfather in the face and knocking his glasses off and getting in a vicious fight with her sister Meredith that resulted in injuries requiring emergency medical attention. Bill says he feels that he can’t punish or parent the girls because they call the police on him with allegations of domestic abuse. Meredith and Emma say their parents are controlling and manipulative.
