Episode summary Edit

Jo meets the Keilen family in New Market, Minnesota. With Shaun and Tami who are both 27 years old, and have 4 children. Haeley who is 6, twins Maile and Malia who are 4, and Leighton who is 1.

A working mother with a craving for perfection, Tami places more importance on making sure the girls are dressed perfectly than she does on making sure they behave. In spare moments, instead of spending time with her hard-working husband, she spends time cleaning the house and making sure all the vacuum tracks are back in place on the carpet (this work can last until 2 a.m.).

Shaun works 24-hour shifts as a firefighter paramedic and just wants time to enjoy his wife and kids when he gets home. All three of his daughters are acting out.

Maile is an opinionated, stubborn, and a strong willed, four-year-old girl who wants to get her own way. When her mom picked out her outfit that she does not like, she will take it off, like she didn't like that outfit at all. It takes Tami about 2 hours to win the battle against Maile. If Malie wanted something else for a meal or something for snack at the wrong time and she's told no she'll throw a pretty big fit by screaming, crying, whining, stomping, and jumping wildly.

Haeley gets very frustrated constantly with both of the twins. She gets constant headaches from Maile's screaming. She can have attitude and can get a little rude to both of the twins. Sometimes she could lash out and can get physical with them, by shouting and aggression by slapping and grabbing.

Malia doesn't act out as much as the other girls, but she also misbehaves. In Malia's perfect world, she can be on Tami's lap 24 hours a day.

All three of the girls misbehave in the car and out out public, especially in the grocery store. In the car, the girls act really rowdy and very rambunctious. They fight, scream, and constantly take their seat belts off. At the grocery store, there's a lot of crying, screaming, fits, tantrums, and lots of boredom.

Meanwhile, Leighton is in his high chair all by himself with no attention from his parents or his sisters. He's lost in the shuffle. Can Jo help the Keilens gain control over their household?
