Episode summary

In this Season 3 finale, Jo visits the Amouri Family in Michigan where Tamara (31) and Michael (30) need help with their 4 children: 4-year-old Hailey, 2-year-old twins Jianni and Julian and 1-year-old Ashton.

Hailey is stubborn and bossy towards her parents, the twins get into everything in the house, and the house is so unprotected, baby Ashton nearly gets into a light socket. The kids also sneak out of the house and run out on the street unsupervised.

Tamara spends most of her day cleaning and Michael works many hours every day. Jo is shocked when she discovers that Hailey has been listening to gangster rap on her mom's MP3 player. Can Jo help this family out?


  • In this episode, none of the children are shown being disrespectful and getting sent to timeout. However, it's focued more on childproofing the house, due to the dangers the kids were putting themselves in and the parents making excuses not to childproof the house, due to recently moving in at the time.
  • This episode does not feature Jo introducing alot of techniques to the family, even though a daily routine can be seen in the background, but she taught these parents the productive play technique with the children.
  • This is one of the few episodes to not have the families' home addresses blurred out. This is due to the fact that the Amouri family faced eviction shortly after filming this episode. Because of this, the airdate was delayed until the family's eviction was settled, making this a Season 3 finale having aired three months after the previous episode. Also, this family has lived the shortest in any housing unit of any family who appeared on this show, and this is the only family to move out of a housing before its episode went on the air.
  • This episode was filmed in November 2006.
