She also seemed to favor the girls over Jared, making excuses for them due to their age. When Jared expressed frustration with the girls, she would blame him for not being more understanding or tolerant. Jo made sure Melora started sticking up for Jared and punishing the girls when their behavior was inappropriate. Melora also improved her relationship with Jared by spending one-on-one time with him, listening to the ideas he shared through the Thought Box.
Melora was 34 years old at the time of her appearance on Supernanny and as of 2017, she is 47 years old.
