Breaking the Dating Violence Cycle
After hearing Brittany's story, Vicki offers advice to Ken and Darlene. "It seems like they have done everything possible. They are terrified for their daughter's safety, and yet, it seems to me that they've almost done too much," she says. "I know from all my years in working with this issue that parents who are trying to control and keep their daughter out of the relationship, it's not going to work. So my heart breaks because I know the fear that they're feeling."
Tyra says Vicki reminds her of her own mother.
