Dr. Jason Seaver is a psychiatrist who works at home
because his wife, Maggie, has gone back to work. So
it's Jason's turn to supervise the kids: Mike, 15,
more interested in having a good time than in respon-
sibility; Carol, 13, the smart one; and Ben, 9, no
slouch himself at getting into scrapes. Dad was always
available with sage advice, while Mom, who had become
a reporter for the Long Island Herald, rushed off to work.
