Episode summary Edit
Jo meets the Young family in Sarasota, Florida, where parents Sherman (aged 38) and Joelle Young (aged 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 almost 4-year-old sister, Shelby. He also refuses to stay out of his big brother Dylan's room.
Meanwhile almost four-year-old, only girl, and the youngest child, Shelby is picking up some of Shermie's aggressive behavior and wall climbing. She is very stubborn, defiant, and cries a lot. When Shelby gets bored after a while when the family is playing a board game she'll throw it away or get aggressive.
The two of the youngest children tend to climb up on the walls & shelves.
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 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?
