The kids individually are all doing a school project on the theme, Our Changing World. While Jennie and Chip - on Allie's urging - do something elaborate for their respective projects, Emma, the self-proclaimed C student, takes the easy way out and does something quick and simplistic. Kate has never pushed Emma in this manner because Kate saw herself at that age much like Emma is. But Allie convinces Kate to convince Emma to apply herself a little bit more. Emma accepts the challenge and decides to do a video for her project on the subject of Our Changing World of Divorce, with her own household as the subject matter. Kate and Allie want the video to be a sanitized version of what their household is really like. What starts as encouragement from the adult figures quickly changes to exasperation as Emma films everything everywhere. But the nature of the video hits a personal moment for Emma when she experiences a moment resulting from being the daughter of divorced parents. Written by
