He doted on his daughter, but felt he had nothing in common with his son. He also felt his son could be tougher and less whiny. When helping Frank Patrick with his homework, he became frustrated with his son's whining, and made the situation worse with negative language. He also sent Frank Patrick to the Naughty Chair for 7 minutes, for "giving [him] a hard time with homework, not correcting the A and for just being a whiny little brat." Jo let Frank know that this language was unacceptable and abusive, but he didn't seem to give an owl's hoot about it, and then became very defensive with Jo's advice.
He was 29 at time and is now 41 in 2017.
Now, Frank and Danielle are divorced and he sadly lost custody and visitation of his two children.

- "We are going to a bad spot with this whole homework thing because you can't!...."

- "Stop crying now! You sound ridiculous Frank! Shut your mouth!"
- ”I don’t want to hear him whining..........he stopped it worked.”
- "Shut your mouth and start doing your homework."
- "Is that an A or a C or what letter is that? Fix it! I never seen an A that looks like a C. Start over."
