“Federico Family”

Sylvia and Michael Federico have three boys, ages 2, 3 and 5. Mom openly admits she wants to be the fun mom rather than a disciplinarian. Both parents bribe the kids with junk food to get them to behave or to otherwise appease them. Mom brings a loaded backpack with sugary snacks when she takes the boys out in public to use for bribes if they misbehave or complain. The kids sneak snacks all day long, and the parents baby the children, especially Dominic, the 5-year-old. They brush his teeth for him, pick out his clothes and let him use the stroller at will, instead of his 2-year-old brother. When she tries to follow Jo’s instructions for a time out, Sylvia calls it “torture.” Can Jo get these parents to stop mollycoddling and ante up?

See if Jo can help this family before it’s too late.

Patricia and Greg are grandparents who should be enjoying their golden years. Instead, 25-year-old daughter Kristin Hallenbeck still lives at home, and has two terrors — Jordon (6) and Jaydon (4), whom she expects her mother to raise while she surfs the net, watches TV and texts friends. Kristin doesn’t get along with her own parents and the lack of respect has carried into the next generation. The boys completely act out and, like their mother, have no respect for Patricia and Greg. They walk all over their grandparents who are exhausted by their constant fighting, backtalk and misbehavior. Kristen openly criticizes and undermines her mother over things like what her kids eat and whether or not the children need to follow their grandparents’ wishes. Jo candidly admits she’s horrified, disgusted and “gobsmacked” by Kristin’s selfishness, and plans a serious wake-up call for this family.
