I'm sure NANNY 911 isn't everyone's cup of tea. I myself had heard friends rave about the show a good few weeks before actually checking it out after my sister INSISTED I watch to learn how to get my little child to sleep in her own bed. From the first episode I watched I was HOOKED. This show is Must See for anyone with small children, a lot of rambunctious kids or even a snotty spouse who isn't pulling their weight around the house. The advice is priceless...and free! An hour of your week well spent. The premise of the show is some family that has a lot on it's plate and cant deal calls the show. There are three nannys on hand and going bu what your problems are they decide which nanny is best suited to offer advice. They send her to your house and she observes the way the family functions...or rather...doesn't function. Then she sits everyone down and tells them what the problem is. Mostly she never blames one person ..because as we all know...being a family is like being in a team and everyone has to work together to make things run smoothly. So the nanny points out the problems she can see with each member of the family and day by day they work on improving the situation. There are rewards and minor punishments and stuff like that to let the family know when they have done right or wrong. Usually by the end of the show the family has made major improvements or at least minor improvements. Then for their troubles of showing their crazy dysfunctional family on TV they get a prize such as a trip. Watching this show has been a real learning experience for me. I'm not newly wed or even a new mom....I've been married 7 years and have a 6 year old. But the advice I've learned from watching NANNY 911 dis-proves the old adage "You cant teach an old dog new tricks". You can! I feel my patience and communication with my husband and daughter has improved by putting what I learned from the show to use. NANNY 911 is a winner!
