IN A POWERFUL EPISODE THAT BRINGS JO AND THE PARENTS TO TEARS,
SUPERNANNY HELPS HEAL A 15-YEAR FAMILY HEARTACHE WHILE WORKING
WITH HER LARGEST BROOD EVER, ON ABC'S "SUPERNANNY"
"Prescott Family" � In this powerful episode, Jo helps heal a long-held rift between parents and the mom's estranged dad while working with her largest family ever. Kadi and Daniel Prescott have seven children, ranging in age from one year to eight. Kadi's own father left her family when she was just 13, after coming out of the closet. Kadi is still hurting from this experience of abandonment, and her husband, Daniel, is resistant to their young family having a closer relationship with her dad because of his sexuality. This emotional distance from her own father is a true heartache for Kadi, who also feels she's falling short as a mother: She loses her temper too frequently with the kids, especially with seven-year-old Daniel, who was recently diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. She relies on her oldest daughter, Marli, who's eight, to be the "mini-Mom," as Jo says, giving the youngster more responsibility than the other kids combined. On top of all this, Kadi doesn't have any friends within 45 minutes of their home, and feels lonely and isolated. Enter Jo, who tries to bridge the gap between Kadi's father and the family, help Kadi build a support network, and show both parents how to manage Daniel better, on "Supernanny," WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 13 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
