Federico Family

Mar 11, 2011 on ABC at 8:00 PM


Jo visits the Federico family. Sylvia and Michael have 3 boys: 5-year-old Dominic, 3-year-old Michael, and 2-year- old Vincent. Sylvia admits that she wants to be the fun mother rather than a disciplinarian. The parents bribe their sons with junk ... (more)food to get them to behave and Sylvia brings a backpack filled with sugary snacks when she takes the boys out in public to use for bribes if they complain or misbehave in any way. The boys sneak snacks all day long and the parents baby their kids, especially Dominic. They push Dominic in the stroller (instead of Vincent), brush his teeth for him, and pick out his clothes. When Sylvia tries to follow through on Jo's instructions for a time out, she calls it torture and ignores discipline. Can Jo get Sylvia & Michael to stop babying their children and step up to the discipline?
