excellent show, especially if you have kids
27 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We've all seen (or have) kids who are out of control. Just trying to incorporate a few techniques of Jo Frost, the Supernanny, would probably prove helpful. It's a very entertaining and informative show. First of all, the families are so nightmarish and the kids so awful, you can't imagine that anyone or anything - other than maybe a stun gun

  • could help. I have no idea how long it takes Jo to work her magic,


but the results are totally amazing.

I think one of the big things she highlights is that the parents are the ones who are supposed to be in control. One would think this would be obvious, but it isn't. And also, that control isn't gained by screaming, swearing, or hitting . The other thing her work points out is how desperate these poor kids are not only for attention and discipline from their parents, but for some sort of order and structure in their lives. If they weren't, they wouldn't sob when Jo leaves. The kids all seem to love and appreciate her - maybe not at first, but after a fashion.

Frost is a natural - she's British, outspoken, warm, and empathetic. Parents should find the show helpful in this world of both parents working, chaotic schedules, and the change in parenting style from when many of us were young.
