Traveling to a secluded island off Seattle, Jo meets Rikki and Jenye Young, who forego discipline in a misguided attempt to compensate for uprooting their three young sons so often. After four moves just this year due to Rikki’s sales work, Nicco, 6, Makai, 4, and Crew, 21 months, are out of control — and Rikki and Jenye are at their wits’ end. Rikki can’t sleep because little Crew consistently wants in his parents’ bed. And when Dad occasionally tries to inject some discipline into the boys’ lives, the result is explosive tantrums. With a fifth move looming, Rikki and Jenye increasingly worry about the long-term effects of the family frenzy on their sons’ lives. See if Jo can provide some much-needed lessons about structure and stability for this family frequently on the move.
