In one of the scenes, Palin pulls out her Mama Grizzly moves as she is forced to stop a male friend of 16-year-old Willow, her middle child, from hanging out in her bedroom.

"See this gate," Palin says to Willow and friend, Andy, while pointing at the child safety gate for her two-year-old son. "It's not just for Trig, it's for noooo boys allowed upstairs."

As predicted, right when Palin turned her head and returned to her work,  Andy sneaked his way past mom and up the stairs to Willow's room.

But it didn't take long for Palin to notice. After a quick call to Willow's phone and a threatening "I'm going to count to three," Andy found his way back downstairs.

The eight-part TLC series airs on Sunday's at 9 p.m.
