The mother of four—Leo, 4, Beau, 3, and 6-week-old twins Willem and Jesse—pages Jo Frost for help on the ABC series’ Feb. 20 episode.

WHY THE PARENTING STRESS? I never adopted a schedule, and having boys was an awakening—the toddlers’ energy level is outrageous. I took it as a hint we needed help when our neighbor said, “Supernanny is having a casting call and I wondered if you would be interested—no offense!”

WHAT DID YOU LEARN? Mainly getting organized. Jo’s pointers helped tremendously when it came time for scheduling naps, playtime, eating and disciplining. They are still acting out, but the difference now is in the way we deal with it.

HAVE THE KIDS BROUGHT YOU CLOSER TO YOUR DAD, BEACH BOY BRIAN WILSON? He invited us over for Christmas Eve dinner. He got to meet the kids. It was just great, really healing.
