Laura admits that she screams and yells at her son Joseph's hockey games. Recently, Laura got so out of control, she felt embarrassed by her own actions. "I wasn't agreeing with refs not making any calls and I stood up, screamed, yelled, cursed, asked him where his whistle was, and the referee asked whoever yelled to leave. I would not admit that it was me, so my mother took the blame and left."

Dwayne is also a self-described sideline screamer at his kids' events. His fiancée won't even attend his son's games anymore because Dwayne creates such a scene. "I'm definitely intense with my sons," he says. "… I'm willing to sacrifice her coming to the games or me being slightly embarrassed. I'm extreme. And most people that are successful are extreme. … I don't know that I have a problem."
