'Wife Swap': Dad Coaches Son By Yelling At Him, So New 'Wife' Has Them Swap Roles (VIDEO)

Dance dad Robert must have picked up a few tips from Abby Lee Miller of "Dance Moms." Featured on "Wife Swap," Robert coached his son, Lil' Robert, to tap greatness by berating him and yelling at him. Swapped mom Karina didn't like what she was seeing at all. So when she got a little bit of control, she had the pair try a little role reversal.

After getting yelled at by his son, Robert realized this wasn't the best approach. "I yell and scream because I think that’s the only way I’ll get through to him -- to be perfect when he performs. Nobody can be perfect," Robert said.

Lil' Robert forgave him immediately. It was a powerful lesson in seeing things from the other side that worked. In fact, virtually everything about this "Swap" worked -- far more than most episodes.

"In the end these two couples ended with the most respect for each other and the changes the others made," Celeb Dirty Laundry noted. "They actually hugged."

Will this be the most successful "Wife Swap" ever? Keep tuning in on Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC to find out.
