On this week’s Supernanny, Jo Frost visits the Baulisch family in Papillion, Nebraska. The Baulisch family consists of Dorothy and Kip Baulisch and their four children. Dorothy and Kip are both deaf, but all four of their children can hear.
The four children are eighteen year old Melissa, eight year old Jessica, seven year old Jennifer, and five year old Kristin. Melissa knows sign language, and she often plays the role of surrogate “hearing” parent. She’s almost become a full-time interpreter in the house.
The three youngest daughters are constantly challenging their parents. Kristin ignores her parents and throws temper tantrums. Kip and Dorothy often spend up to three hours trying to get their younger daughters to go to bed.
Melissa become so frustrated when confronting her parents about the situation that she storms out of the room. Jo Frost has to bring Melissa back together with Dorothy and Kip to plan how to bring the family under control. Supernanny airs on Friday, October 10 from 9 PM to 10 PM ET on ABC.
