    It's not exactly All in the Family, yet, but they're trying.

    16 and Pregnant troublemakers Josh Rendon and Ebony Jackson were reportedly allowed a supervised four-hour visit with their 2-year-old daughter, Jocelyn, this week—a little more than two weeks after she was removed from their care by child services.

    The MTV duo were busted in Jacksonville, Ark., on suspicion of child endangerment and drug-related charges after authorities found them living in disgusting conditions. Per police, traces of human and dog feces were found on clothing and on the floors and walls of the residence, which was also full of flies and maggots in some parts. Investigators also turned up in the search 1 gram of synthetic marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

    According to TMZ, officials from the state's Department of Child Services granted Rendon and Jackson two meetings a week with Jocelyn with a supervisor present, though it looks like they've a ways to go before they can regain even temporary custody.

    The pair has reportedly enrolled in parenting classes and therapy in an effort to get Joceyln back. And Ebony herself expressed a desire to clean up their act in a post to her official fan page shortly after her and her hubby's arrest.

    "I would like u all to know those tabloids aren't all true," she wrote. "My family is Wat [sic] is important to me right now [and] they have always been…we just ask for support in our time of hardship…I don't expect u all to support us but we lost a kid and didn't deal now we [are]."

    A  rep for the Arkansas Department of Human Services told E! News the department is unable to release information regarding the case, citing privacy reasons.

    MTV declined to comment on the matter.
