When Jo meets the parents for the first time, Sylvia admits that she wants to be the fun mother rather than discipline her children.
The kids whine and constantly misbehave while the parents bribe their sons with junk food and sugary snacks to get them to behave. Sylvia also brings a backpack filled with the snacks when she takes the boys out in public to use for bribes if they complain or misbehave in any way.
The boys sneak snacks all day long and the parents refuse to stop babying their kids, especially Dominic. They push Dominic in the stroller (instead of Vincent), brush his teeth for him, and pick out his clothes.
When Sylvia tries to follow through on Jo's instructions for a time out, she calls it torture and ignores discipline. Can Jo get Sylvia and Michael to stop babying their children and step up to the discipline?
