Christina and Joe Heredia both work full-time and have four children under five years of age: triplets who have just turned two — Samantha, Taylor and Ryan — and older brother Brandon who is four. Christina is a well-meaning perfectionist who always tried to please her dad. Now, as an adult, she frets that strangers will judge her mothering skills, but in fact she’s her own harshest critic, brought to tears by what she feels is her inability to deal with the challenges of raising these little ones. The simplest tasks are three times harder with the triplets — they cannot be trusted to obey Mom on a short walk through the neighborhood without straying; Brandon tries to get attention from his parents by acting out; and all of the children disrupt mealtime, barely eating. Since the triplets were premature, this is a big concern to Jo and the parents. Can Jo help the Heredias harness the chaos and show Christina how to be more effective?

Nicole and Nate Beck are classic tag-team parents. Nate works full-time and Nicole stays at home, works part-time AND is a full-time student. Add to the mix three boys — Hunter, 9; Pierson, 5; and Bronson, 3 — who offer huge challenges. The youngest has just been expelled from pre-k, spits at Mom and calls Supernanny a curse word; the oldest has attention-deficit disorder, and homework time hangs like a black cloud over each day as the yelling just escalates; and the middle son is extremely stubborn and contradictory. Mom and Dad think they have a time-out tactic called the Penalty Box, but it’s so ineffective that Jo pulls the plug on it immediately when Bronson runs out of the house, down the street and nearly into traffic. Jo notices that Bronson has a speech problem which is probably fueling his aggression. On top of all this, she is shocked to see how the parents’ master bedroom has the kids’ scribbles all over the walls and giant piles of clothing stacked on the floor. Find out if Jo can fix the Beck family.

Debra and Tracy are pushover parents with two sets of twins, ages four and seven, who call all the shots and eat a diet packed with sugar and unhealthy food choices. Four-year-old Parker calls Mom a “butthead” with no consequences; Debra hides in the bathroom to eat a meal and get a moment’s peace. Dad Tracy works from home, and when his rambunctious children need disciplining, he meekly implores them not to misbehave. They respond by locking him out of their bedroom! Find out if Jo Frost can help this family.

Shannon and John both have high profile jobs at a large church, but their home is a far cry from a peaceful sanctuary. All four of their children fight with each other so viciously and so frequently that mom usually intervenes only if someone has drawn blood. That happens regularly because the kids bite, pinch, kick and pull hair for all they’re worth. Mom’s yelling isn’t working, and Dad says he spanks to discipline, since he doesn’t believe that time-outs or talking work. But in spite of the hard-line tactics, neither parent has much authority. How will Jo deal with these challenges, especially with a dad resistant to her methods?
