The Bowersock Family is the first episode of Season 3 of the American Supernanny show.
Jo visits the Bowersocks in Lancaster, Ohio where Jenniffer (25) and Thad (30) are struggling with their three kids: 7-year-old Maddie, 6-year-old Hayden and 4-year-old Lily.
This phenomenal home welcomes a mother, Jennifer, who used corporal punishment on her children, thinking it's helping when it really isn't. The father, Thad, is gone at work and Jennifer puts her mean side on her kids by spanking, yelling and even putting soap in their mouth and then giving up saying "wait until your dad's home!"
Madeline is 7 going on 20 and drives her mom nuts. Hayden is the worst out of the 3. He is an aggravating button pusher, as described by Jennifer.
And Lily can be sweet or evil. In Submission Reel, she stuck up her middle finger to the camera, which was censored.
