"Walker Family" – Anthony and Alice Walker have their hands full. They
have three children — Anthony Jr., 12, Naleila, 6 and Alyssa, 17
months — plus Marcus, a nephew who lives with them full-time, and a
thriving daycare business based in their home. Mom’s outsized
personality and attitude has rubbed off on the kids, and they’re doing
whatever they feel like.
Unsure of how to regain control, she resorts to chasing after the kids through the house, trying to catch them to mete out punishment. Meanwhile, Dad is just looking for a little peace and quiet – and a good night’s sleep. Naleila has her own room, but has spent the last six years sleeping in her parents’ bed, and, since Mom is constantly either feeding or holding Alyssa, the baby sleeps there too – a tight fit for all. Anthony Jr. talks back to Mom, hassles his little sister and has hit the age where he feels the need to battle his father for independence. It doesn’t take Jo long to size up the Walkers’ issues – and she doesn’t like what she sees.
With no boundaries between the daycare and the home, neither is getting the attention it needs. Jo quickly sets new guidelines – a clear separation between work and home, everyone in their own beds and less attitude. Will she succeed in turning the Walkers around? Find out on "Supernanny," MONDAY, MARCH 12 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
