Jo visits the Potter family. Joy and Chris have four children: Noah is 10, Ryan is 7, Jake is 5, and Alexa is 4 (Alexa is the only girl in the Potter family). Day after day both parents are constantly disrespected by their children and try to run the... (more)ir household with different styles. Joy's parenting style is passive and the kids walk all over her. On the other hand, father Chris is very extreme. Chris's temper is out of control, he constnatly yells at and scares his children and its straining his relationship with his kids, especially Noah. Noah has a strained relationship with his father, who berates him as a brat when he's angry. Chris feels that Joy is undermining him by challenging his parenting style, which how his own mother didn't do with his father when he was growing up. Jo observes that Joy isn't consistent with discipline and that Chris could break Noah's spirit if things don't change. Joy tells Jo sadly that her marriage is at risk if she and Chris don't get on the same page. Can Jo knock some sense into Chris and rescue his marriage from the brink before he ruins his relationships for good?
