Episode summary

Jo visits the Beck Family in Orange, California. Nicole (28) and Nate (28) are tag-team parents: During the day, Nate works full-time and Nicole stays at home. She also works part-time after Nate gets home and is a full-time design student while raising three rebellious boys: Hunter (9), Pierson (5) and Bronson (3).

The youngest of three boys, Bronson is very aggressive, has just been permanently expelled from preschool for his dominant and disruptive behavior, spits at mom and calls Supernanny a curse word; the second, Pierson, is very stubborn; and the oldest, Hunter, doesn't act out as much as his younger brothers, but has ADHD.

  • This is the only episode to use the Penalty Box, the Beck Family's own version of timeout that didn't really work for them. Jo has since modified the Penalty Box technique which parallels her Naughty Spot technique.
