JO TRIES TO HELP A COP'S SHOPLIFTING THREE-YEAR-OLD AND AN OVERWHELMED
MOM WHO LAUGHS WHEN THE CHILDREN MISBEHAVE, ON ABC'S "SUPERNANNY"
"Citarella Family" � The four Citarella kids, ages seven, six, three and one, run "a three-ring circus around me," according to Mom Debbie. In spite of the chaos, she laughs all the time, even as her children flout her rules. Dad Joe admits that his kids' uncontrollable behavior has taken the fun out of parenting, and he retreats by wearing earplugs whenever he drives the kids around. He's a police officer in a small town, but three-year-old daughter Sarah has taken to shoplifting! Even baby Joshua at one year is a feisty "brute" who defies his parents' wishes. A simple trip to the drug store with the four children sets off all kinds of acting out, and an overwhelmed Debbie becomes panicky and breathless. Jo has some stern words for the laughing mom, who Jo thinks isn't serious about changing, on "Supernanny," WEDNESDAY, APRIL 9 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
