Episode summary Edit
Brandy and Doug are the parents and all 3 of the children terrorize them especially 3 year old ring leader Lizzy.
Sara is stubborn and one time she gave herself a haircut with the scissors. She sometimes will fight until the end where she wins.
Lizzy is the biggest problem of all. She's very aggressive, throws tantrums and can cause mischief. Because of her aggressive behavior, she's about to get expelled from daycare.
Andrew whines, screams, and cries all day long. He can do dangerous things.
Brandy spends the majority of her time cleaning the house, leaving her children with nothing to do all day.
When Doug comes home from work, he just sits on the couch, leaving Brandy to discipline the kids by herself. At the parents' meeting, Jo makes it clear to the parents that they're both lazy. Jo gets embarrassed by having to witness Brandy and Doug bicker with each other about who is more to blame for the kids' misbehavior and which of them does more or less around the house.
Can Jo help the Doyles control their children and get the parents to start being more lively?
