When Lizzy acted out, she gave her mixed messages by tickling and cuddling her, while she locks Sara in her room when Sara gets in trouble. Brandy was tougher on Sara than Lizzy. She also cleaned the house all day, so the kids acted out in boredom and kept getting hurt. When Jo confronted her at the Parent Meeting, she burst into tears and said, "I love my kids" and Jo told her to show it.
She also worked full-time, yet shouldered all of the parenting and housekeeping duties because, as Doug stated, making copies and doing administrative work like Brandy did was not as exhausting as his job was.
She had five younger brothers and two older sisters.
She was 24 years old at the time and is now 35 in 2016.
