Aired on 09/14/2014 | CC tv-14
As the parents of seven children, Steve Harvey and his wife, Marjorie, are always on their toes. "You know, when you have seven children, each situation is going to be different," Marjorie says. "So we have, you know, some of the same challenges that other parents have had, but then we go back, and we sit down [and say], 'Okay, this didn't work. This is what's going on. We need to change this.' And we had to make some hard decisions with them because, what we said, their wings do work."

When the boys wanted cars, Steve says, his boys played him and his wife against one another—and the situation didn't end well. In the video above, Steve explains why accountability was a huge life lesson for his sons.
