A TERRIBLE TRIO HAS THESE ORANGE COUNTY PARENTS
DESPERATE FOR HELP, ON ABC'S "SUPERNANNY"
"Beck Family" � Nicole and Nate Beck are classic tag-team parents. Nate works full-time and Nicole stays at home, works part-time AND is a full-time student. Add to the mix three boys -- Hunter, 9; Pierson, 5; and Bronson, 3 -- who offer huge challenges. The youngest has just been expelled from pre-k, spits at Mom and calls Supernanny a curse word; the oldest has attention-deficit disorder, and homework time hangs like a black cloud over each day as the yelling just escalates; and the middle son is extremely stubborn and contradictory. Mom and Dad think they have a time-out tactic called the Penalty Box, but it's so ineffective that Jo pulls the plug on it immediately when Bronson runs out of the house, down the street and nearly into traffic. Jo notices that Bronson has a speech problem which is probably fueling his aggression. On top of all this, she is shocked to see how the parents' master bedroom has the kids' scribbles all over the walls and giant piles of clothing stacked on the floor. "What are these parents thinking?" Jo marvels. Where to begin, and can she make a difference? Find out on "Supernanny," FRIDAY, DECEMBER 11 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
