Teen Calmly Tells Mom To ‘Man Up’ And Stop Making Excuses For Her Behavior

Eighteen-year-old Sarah has been in the care of her grandparents for the last year, and they recently gained custody of her younger sister — an arrangement Sarah supports, but that her mom believes is unfair.

“I believe my mom is mentally ill right now,” says Sarah. “For a lot of my life, I felt like I’ve been more of the mother in the mother/daughter relationship, and me telling her right from wrong. I definitely feel like it’s not fair for other people having to keep taking responsibility for my mom. My mom had us. We’re her children. I think it’s her responsibility to grow up and take care of us.”

In the video above from Monday’s episode of Dr. Phil, Sarah tells her mom: “I feel like right now you’re just acting like … you’re just not admitting to the mistakes that you know you’ve made. You told me you’re going to come on this show and try to get help, but you can’t sit here and point the finger at everyone else. I understand that, yeah, you believe some things didn’t work out the way they should, and some things were said about you that weren’t true. But if you really want help, you’re going to have man up and say, ‘I shouldn’t have done that. I should have been a better parent. I should have done these things, and I’m willing to change, and I’m willing to be that person.'”

The Ultimate Flowchart for Cleaning Out Your Closet (No Excuses)

flowchart-holding

When was the last time you were able to close your closet door? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Nor should you be: The task of cleaning out your closet solo is near impossible. When you look into your wardrobe, you see all the memories that give life to your clothes; you’re aware of the money you spent on them, and each time you consider extracting a piece, a chorus of “what ifs” sings in your head: What if miniskirts come back? What if I take a trip to Morocco? What if Jake Gyllenhaal asks me out on a date? What if Kristen Stewart invites me to play catch on the beach? It isn’t easy to limit your options, or find an advisor you trust who has the patience to take on the task with you.

And so, unless you’re Kim Kardashian West with a closet-cleanse-giddy husband (this week she tweeted that the two were up all night redoing her wardrobe for a “New 2015 vision”), you need this flowchart. It addresses all the excuses you can make for yourself while attempting to edit your wardrobe. All you have to do in return is commit, and try your best to be honest.

I developed this line of questioning two years ago while playing the role of closet-cleaning guru for my good friend Audrey Gelman. As she held up each piece, I asked her: Do you need it? Does it fit? What is its sentimental value? Do you look like future you or past you in this? The deal was: We sorted through, and at the end, she got veto power on three pieces and could take them from the donate pile and put them back in her closet. Plus, we simultaneously made a list of new things to look forward to buying that would streamline and define her look. We’re still friends, so it couldn’t have been that painful. Try it out for yourself, or bring it along when a friend asks you to be a wardrobe-trimming voice of reason—just remember what Kanye told Kim when they cleaned out her closet on Keeping Up With the Kardashians in 2012: “Sometimes silence is the best response.” Now toss it on the pile.

10 Bad Excuses for Considering a Breakup

There are many circumstances where breaking up can be a good thing for both people involved, but there are also many bad excuses that can lead to a breakup. These excuses are often the result of a hasty emotional reaction, fear of the future, or an impulsive reaction to a temporary event. Before you break up with someone, make sure you consider your situation carefully, and avoid breaking up for these 10 reasons:

1. They notice other attractive people.

Your partner needs to be committed to you, but that doesn’t mean they’re forbidden from looking at anybody of the opposite sex.

2. You had a fight.

Fights happen in relationships. Many times, they’re actually a good thing. Don’t let one small fight break up an otherwise great relationship.

3. You disagree on a like or dislike.

If you discover your partner hates your favorite band, it may be hard to hear, but it’s no reason to spark a breakup. You’re allowed to have different interests.

4. You don’t have enough time for the relationship.

If the relationship is important enough to you, you can make time for it.

5. Your partner doesn’t do everything you ask.

Relationships take two people — two people who make decisions and do things independently. Don’t break up a relationship because you can’t fully control it.

6. You’re unhappy right now.

If a relationship is making you chronically unhappy, that’s one thing. But if you’re only unhappy for a moment, don’t impulsively end things because of it.

7. You don’t like a bad habit.

If your partner chews too loudly, it might be annoying, but it’s not a good reason to break up.

8. You fantasize about being single.

When you’re single, you’ll probably fantasize about being in a relationship.

9. You don’t want to commit.

Relationships don’t necessarily demand a lifelong commitment. Take things one day at a time.

10. You find out new things about them.

Once the initial allure of the new relationship fades, you’ll start noticing new details about your partner. Everybody has flaws; if you break up with someone every time you discover some, you’re bound to be single forever.

There are many good reasons to break up with someone, but these do not apply. Think carefully before you decide to end things.
