Allen Griswold is the husband of Roberta, and the father of Brianna, Lauren, Joe, and Alex.

He had a tendency to yell at his kids, which made them fear him. He felt like Roberta was too soft on the children. But in the end, he was pretty grateful for everything Mike had done for him, especially helping him control his anger.

He was 39 when Mike Ruggles came to help him.

Allen is best known for pushing his 2-year-old, Alex to the floor when he wouldn't shut the drawer.
