02/27/2008 - "Tafoya Family"
Season 4, Episode 411
Holly and Jimmy Tafoya's three rambunctious boys have them at wits' end. James, 7, and Tyler, 5, like to play violent videogames (even ones rated "Teen" or "Mature") at their friends' houses and then re-enact the violent scenarios in their play. Little Ryan, 2, is poised to follow in their footsteps. James lies constantly, and all the boys tend to slip out of Mom's supervision, whether at home or elsewhere. Unfortunately Jimmy's parenting style tends towards yelling, cursing at the children and hitting. Holly makes James swallow liquid soap to teach him a lesson, and a shocked Jo says, "Are you insane?" Holly walks out of Jo's parent meeting and tells her to leave the house.
