** Tom too, to a smaller extent. He moves the family to Chicago when it's obvious none of the kids want to go. Why? So he can pursue his dream job, and says they will be a happier and stronger family as a result. None of the kids buy it [[spoiler:and when Tom catches up to Mark after the latter runs away]], Mark tells Tom he didn't keep his promise to the family because they're not happier than they were.

Added DiffLines:

* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Played with. When Jake, Jessica, Kim and Mike find out Mark is being bullied at school, they give the bullies a dose of LaserGuidedKarma by beating them up. It still gets them punished both by their principal, and then by Tom, who grounds them.


Added DiffLines:

* Also, you may be defending your brother by beating up his bullies, but that doesn't mean you won't get punished for it. Namely, a trip to the principal's office and then being grounded.

* RealityEnsues: Having twelve kids to divide your attention will mean that ''someone'' gets left out, and that they're hard for one adult to work with on their own.

** Even Tom gets hints of this. He moves the family to Chicago even when none of the kids want to do it, just so he can pursue his dream job and look good in front of Shake (Charlie says later that Shake was a superstar in high school, whereas Tom was a loser, while he is CallingTheOldManOut), and becomes something of a workaholic so doesn't see the kids' side when they're either ignored or punished for fighting in school, but of course he still cares very much about the family and Kate and [[spoiler:eventually gives up the coaching job so he can get another job closer to home.]]* LaserGuidedKarma: The bullies who knocked Mark's glasses off and pulled his hat down over his eyes get their comeuppance when Jake, Mike, Jessica and Kim find out and give them a taste of their own medicine, even if it results in them being punished for it.
