Interesting, but monotonous.
24 January 2007 | by scs0See all my reviews

This show is entertaining, but will eventually grow stale. How many times can you watch two stubborn adults who'd rather be friends than parents to their kids get called out on some of the most basic things? The solution to these households usually boil down to one of the following:

1) Say what you mean and mean what you say. In nearly every show the parents consistently make threats but never carry them out. Gee, I wonder why the kids don't listen?

2) The parents don't back each other up. Gee, ya think the kids may learn to exploit that? It cracks me up when it's over something irrelevant too. Dad says "no" to getting a cookie and then Mom says "OK". Even if the Dad was being too strict it's more important for the parents to display solidarity. Obviously, the kid picks up on this weakness and learns how to manipulate the adults.

The most amusing part of the show is when one of the parents break down because Jr. is unhappy. You'll often see a child flying into a tantrum when confronted with one of the Nanny's new rules. This tantrum is often accompanied with some of the phoniest sobbing you've ever heard. Then one of the doormat parents, usually the mother, falls for and surrenders to this blatant display of manipulation. Child 1; Parent 0. The Nanny will then confront the parent and the parent will be all offended by the requests of the Nanny! You might think the Nanny was requesting the parents turn their house into a military boarding school! This would be hysterical if it wasn't so sad. For every 1 of these brats that a Nanny fixes, millions will pour into society.

This is an important show because these kinds of spineless parents are becoming the norm. It seems like whenever I go out I run into a wild brat accompanied with a parent who completely ignores what the kid is doing. It bothers me more to see a parent doing absolutely nothing than it does to see (and hear) a bratty kid running wild in a public place.
