The Mitchell family was in trouble on "Family S.O.S.," and they proved resistant to Jo Frost's attempts to help them work through their problems. Specifically, husband Mitch had no interest in doing her "homework" assignments.
“We’re not in high school no more," he told her. When she insisted that he was there to learn from her and this was part of the process, Mitch pulled out a terrible excuse, saying, "“But I was tired.”
“I don’t care! I don’t care! OK? I don’t care whether you’re tired," Jo said. "I have an expectation. I expect you both to do the homework.”
But Jo's no-nonsense approach didn't sit well with the couple. They they decided they didn't want her help anymore. But Jo wasn't willing to give up so quickly. She went back in hopes of helping the couple, and they did eventually come around and listen to her advice. By the end of the week, the family said they felt closer than ever.
Frost told Channel Guide Magazine that she likes the format of her new show better than she did with 'Supernanny," because it allows her to use her skills to help entire families, and not just kids. She said the show feels more raw, more real, because of it. Even when it's not easy.
