Genuinely interesting and enjoyable
31 October 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

"Supernanny" is a great show, not only for entertainment value, but for parents and older children to pick up useful tips about behaviour and parent-child relationships. Jo Frost is an experienced nanny of children, and in each episode she visits a family having trouble with their child or children, attempting to make for a better family with well-behaved children by changing the behaviour of the children mainly through their parenting.

First the family submits a tape where they explain their problems, then Jo visits the family and observes the behaviour of the children for herself. Jo then points out to the parents what they are doing right and wrong, then makes family rules and teaches the parents strategies for dealing effectively with misbehaving children. Jo then leaves the family to see how they do on their own; she observes during this time, then returns to give some more feedback. A "family update" appears at the end.

The show seems to have very little staged, everything is natural (often taken from hidden/night cameras) and augmented with interviewed from both Jo and family members.

Jo is clearly an expert, her tricks are simple yet very effective with young children, even the very terrible ones. She's also often able to improve the relationship between the parents. Jo's techniques vary for each specific family, child and problems, which explains why they are so successful. The show is engaging and also very useful.
