This family from Raleigh, North Carolina has recently lost a maternal grandfather to esophaegal cancer. Darlene (34) is having a hard time dealing with the loss of a family member and her mother, Josephine (79), is living with the family temporarily. The kids, Jessica (5), Sylvia (3), and Larissa (2), constantly snack throughout the day, whine, act up in public, fight, hit, kick, and swear. What's even worse, dad Paul (37) who is a former cop, has such a terrible temper that he brings out the hot sauce or the wooden spoon to take his frustration on the children upon getting fired from his job. Can Jo help this family out?
