In this Season 4 premiere, Jo visits the Drake family in Swainsboro, Georgia where Donna and Billy Joe have three children: almost 5-year-old daughter Josie and 3 and a half year old twins Jared & Justin.
Billy Joe and Donna are very overprotective of their active, lively young kids & rely on Donna's mother Mimi (who lives next door to them) to help care for Josie, Jared & Justin.
Jo goes on vacation with the Drakes to teach them how to keep an eye on their kids and provide boundaries in a calm, empowering way. Can Jo help the Drake family out?
