The Cooke Family is the fifth episode of Series 2 of the British Supernanny show. It was remade and re-released as the fifth episode of Season 2 of the American Supernanny show.


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

Meghann is very explosive. She's angry, and 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 with aggressiveness of her own.

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 show she's prepared for it.) Besides that, Gabriella and Erin show signs of taking after Meghann in showing disrespect to their parents.

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