Aneska is a 16-year-old girl who first appeared on Dr. Phil in an episode. She was 12 years old at the time of her participation on the show. Her full name is Aneska Lenardon, despite the fact that her last name was not given on the show.
What happened to Aneska from Dr. Phil?
Aneska, Melanie and Dave’s kid, is constantly afraid of her family. Aneska had lost control and attempted to murder her mother.
She had choked her sister and chased her siblings with a knife. After stealing her mother’s credit card, she approached the vice principal. She had set fire to a doona in their garage.
Aneska’s treatment of animals was also concerning. When she was seven, she crushed a nest of newborn birds to death with her own hands, and when she was six, she bludgeoned the family’s pet hamster to death with a flashlight.
Melanie, her mother, said,
“Our 12-year-old daughter, Aneska, looks very cute and innocent, but she holds our family in a constant state of crisis. [She] is explosive, violent and aggressive. She lies, she steals and she doesn’t respect authority.”
“She had chipped a tooth, her face was swollen and she was bleeding. Aneska was taken to the hospital, and she had a quick examination by a doctor, and we were told to take her home. About a week later, we noticed a change in Aneska’s personality.”
Since medical treatments and medicines had had no effect on her, her parents had sent her to an adolescent recovery clinic about 20 times. She claimed that violence provided her with a sense of safety.
More about Aneska’s problems
According to her parents, Aneska’s attitude changed after she fell off her tricycle at the age of three. According to her father, someone had flipped a switch because his daughter was completely different.
According to someone from their hometown in Manitoba, Canada, their struggle was not exaggerated for the cameras.
Similarly, one person said,
“[Melanie] is one heck of a mom and I pray she doesn’t get ridiculed for her attempt on getting help for her daughter.This family has been [through] enough, let’s support them in this journey and pray this beautiful little girl gets the help she desperately needs,”
Dr. Bradley Jabour, CEO and Chief of Neuroradiology at Smart Brain and Health, reviewed her MRI.
He suspected that she had bipolar disorder or a severe sensory dysregulation disorder. It is a condition in which the brain has difficulty processing and reacting to sensory input.
