Jo meets the Young family in Sarasota, Florida, where parents Sherman (38) and Joelle Young (37) work opposite job shifts with Dad watching the kids during the day and then dropping them off with Joelle before leaving for work for the evening.
Five-year-old Shermie is very angry, disrespectful, and aggressive towards his mother, 13 year-old-brother Dylan, and 3 year old sister, Shelby. He also refuses to stay out of his big brother Dylan's room. He has the biggest tendency to climb on walls and shelves.
Meanwhile three year old (almost four), only girl, and the youngest child, Shelby is stubborn, dramatic and cries a lot. Worryingly for Sherman and especially Joelle, Shelby is starting to pick up some of Shermie's aggressive behavior and wall climbing. When Shelby gets bored after a while when the family is playing a board game she'll throw it away.
Thirteen-year-old big brother Dylan feels like he's forced to spend time with his younger siblings and wants his time alone & also with his parents. He just locks his bedroom door so that his siblings especially Sherrie Jr. can't get in his bedroom.
Sherman is completely clueless when it comes to playing with his kids while Joelle yells at the kids which only makes them ignore and disrespect her more. Can Jo help the Young family out?
