Episode summary Edit
Jo concludes Season 5 with a visit to the Krolikowski Family in Delray Beach, Florida where Shannon and John have four children under 10 years old: 9-year-old Kaleigh, 7-year-old Johnny, 3-year-old Karly and 2-year-old Thomas.
Both Shannon and John have high profile jobs at a large church, but their home is a far cry from a peaceful sanctuary; all four of their children fight with each other so viciously and so frequently that Shannon usually intervenes only if someone has drawn blood.
Shannon's yelling is not working and John has resorted to spanking his kids because he doesn't believe in timeouts or talking works and starts to become so resistant to Jo's methods, he doesn't even want her here.
Can Jo teach them to handle their kids and get John on the same page with proper discipline?

- This episode was filmed in March 2009, as shown in the Time Capsule segment, where John dated the time capsule three months from the present day (as June 12, 2009).
- The primary focus of this episode was increasing the amount of quality time John spent with his wife and children. He felt he had to keep working to support the family because he "might not be here tomorrow." In a very sad twist of fate, John died two years later on July 5, 2011.
