From the outside, Tayler’s life seemed picture perfect — but no one could have imagined the disturbing secrets she was hiding behind her smile. From the ages of 6 to 17, Tayler says her dad, Russell, molested her, gave her drugs, and took her to Mexico on numerous occasions, where she was forced to do unspeakable things. How could these horrific events have occurred without anyone noticing? Tayler’s mom, Deanna, says she was unaware of the alleged abuse, and just thought Tayler and her father had a special father-daughter bond. Were there warning signs she missed? Now 19 and addicted to heroin, Tayler says she feels alone, abandoned and confused — but she also admits that she misses her father. Can Dr. Phil help get her on a path to both emotional and physical recovery? Then, hear from Tayler’s two younger sisters. What did they witness? Were they being groomed by their father? And, where is Russell today? If you’re a parent, tune in to learn how to protect your child from a predator. This program contains strong sexual content. Viewer discretion advised.
