On this week’s episode of Supernanny, Jo Frost pays a visit to the Manley family. The Manley family consists of John and Sarah Manly and their two children. John and Sarah have been separated for longer than six months, and John sleeps at his own apartment. However, John eats and spends weekends at the family house to be with children.
The Manley children are seven year old Max and four year old Claire. They children don’t understand what is going on with their parents, and they are acting out with anger, backtalk, fighting and tantrums. Even going to the grocery store create such a disruption that other shoppers avoid going down the same aisle as the Manley children. With confusion over the state of her marriage, Sarah has great difficulty holding her ground with her children.
When Jo Frost enters the house, Max tells her he wants to ask his Dad why he moved out. When Jo Frost asks John if he was to save his marriage, the answer turns out to be no. With reconciliation not working out for John and Sarah, the couple makes the decision to file for a divorce. Jo Frost attempts to help John and Sarah with this transition in respect to their children. Supernanny airs on Friday, November 7 from 9 PM to 10 PM ET on ABC.
