Episode summary

Jo returns to the UK to help the Cooke family with their three angry daughters: 9-year-old Meghann, 6-year-old Gabriella, and 4-year-old Erin. Paul (44) works as a fireman at the fire station. Denise (44) is a stay at home mum with a part-time admin job.

Meghann is very explosive. She's angry, sometimes aggressive, (mostly to her sisters, sometimes to her parents especially mum and once to Jo during the first day of teaching.) She yells, talks back, and can fly off the handle with emotion. Meghann is violent with her hands (hitting, scratching, and grabbing) and with her words and teeth (yelling, swearing, and biting). Mum reacts to it, by yelling at her and sometimes aggression.

Meanwhile, Gabriella and Erin are picking up Meghann's explosive behavior. They are starting to put up a fight with Meghann or they will instigate the fight (sometimes they'll try to instigate but Meghann can prepared for it) and being very disrespectful to their parents.

Can Jo help Paul and Denise control the girls, especially angry Meghann?
