Episode summary


Anthony and Alice during DVD meeting

Jo visits the Walker Family in Plainfield, Illinois where Alice (32) and Anthony (42) need help with their 3 kids: 12-year-old son Anthony Jr., 6- year-old daughter Naleila (AKA: Leila), and 14-month-old daughter Alyssa. Alice's 17-year-old nephew, Marcus also lives with the family.

Ant Jr. has no respect for his parents, Naleila refuses to sleep in her own bed and has been sleeping in her parents' room every night since she was a baby. Alyssa is very clingy to Alice, who nurses Alyssa to sleep instead of teaching her how to go to sleep on her own.

Alice runs a home daycare and is at a loss of how to discipline her kids. Can Jo help this family out?


  • This episode features an appearance by NBA All-Star Dwyane Wade. He explains to Anthony Jr. that "It doesn't matter how good you are at basketball if your team doesn't like you".
