Episode summary Edit
In the third-season opener, Jo travels to the small town of Ayr, Scotland, where a single mother is in over her head. Kerry (28) has a nine-year-old boy called Ryan, and her live-in boyfriend Steven (40), has three-year-old identical twin boys named David and Declan. Ryan is hot-temper, ringleader of the gang, angry, act out disrespectfully, and extremely aggressive. He can go on very explosive rampage.
Meanwhile, David and Declan doesn't act out as much as Ryan, but they also very disrespectful. They can be very, very defiant, extremely stubborn, rude, swear, potty mouth, name call and sometimes can be aggressive.
- According to various news articles, a scene where Kerry loses it after Ryan deliberately spills a cup of milk became a minor YouTube sensation with over 15,000 views. The news articles all feature Kerry complaining about the embarrassment of this video, despite the fact that all the news coverage would only make it more likely for people to look up the video and watch it. (It can't be found on YouTube any longer.)
- This is the only episode that the family fails by Supernanny.
Ryan is under 10 years old. David and Declan is under 5 years old.
