Girl-Entine's Day With Boys


Getting Up Off The Mat With Boys

"Promoting Change With Boys" is the fourth episode in the second season of Life with Boys and the twenty-fifth episode overall. It first aired on March 19th, 2013 in Canada.


The kids are thrilled to learn that Vice Principal Vitolo, the school’s top enforcer of student conduct, is resigning, but their elation turns to fear when they overhear their father, Jack on the phone being offered the job. Considering this a terrible alternative that will render them social pariahs, Tess organizes a plan to make Jack realize how much he loves being the gym teacher, so we won’t take the new position. Jack catches on and confronts them, only to learn that the kids were laboring under a misconception. He was offered the job as VP at Pineview High School. The kids are all relieved, except Tess, who realizes her problem has just gotten worse, because with Dad leaving their school she will no longer have him as her wrestling coach.


Trivia Edit

  • When Sam is imagining what it would be like with Jack as vice principal, it could be an allsusion to former Nickelodeon show Ned's Declassfied School Survival Guide as the vice principal in the show would wonder in the halls wearing a hat basically the exact same.
