Episode summaryEditJo meets parents Amy and Dale Costello of Medina, Ohio, the largest family she's ever encountered: 10 kids, with ages ranging from 8 months to 15 years. Amy is set on her dream of having 12 children, but her husband doesn't agree.
As the parents had 10 kids, these parents force 15 year old Logan to act like a dad. He is stressed out and had panic attack once. He just feels that raising his 9 siblings is a hard job to do. Carley and Chaslyn also have to watch their younger siblings as well. They are also fed up and so stressed. The parents are blaming the three older kids for not doing a good job taking care of them.
Meanwhile the 6 middle kids are acting out (ages 2-11). They fight constantly and aggressively. They are very rowdy by screaming and shouting and they talk back. They also run around the house.
Can Jo get the parents to understand it's their responsibility to take care of the kids?
