In the premiere episode, six-year-old Ruby suffers separation anxiety during her first week of kindergarten and won't let Cheryl leave the classroom. Jim boasts the situation just needs the emotionally strong heart of a dad. But when he finds he doesn't have the willpower to leave Ruby at school in tears, and the teacher insists he leave, Jim comes up with his own questionable solution. He transfers Ruby to a new school where he sits with her all day. To top it all off, he keeps this a secret from Cheryl to protect his pride.
