Little Mean Girls

Losing Her to the Dark Side?

Heather and Mark are divorced and can't agree on how to parent their unruly daughter, Montanna.  She bullies her friends, kicks her teachers, and has been removed from two schools — and she's only 6!

Michelle admits that she spoiled her daughter, Genesis, and gave her everything she wanted. Now her "princess" is 5, and if she hears no, she throws a screaming temper tantrum.
