Episode summary

Jo visits the Amouri Family in Michigan where Tamara (31) and Michael (30) need help with their 4 children: 4-year-old Hailey, 2-year-old twins Jianni and Julian and 1-year-old Ashton.

Hailey is stubborn and bossy towards her parents, the twins get into everything in the house, and the house is so unprotected, baby Ashton nearly gets into a light socket. The kids also sneak out of the house and run out on the street unsupervised.
