Throwback Thursday-Supernanny (2005-2011)

Anyone who has ever been a parent will tell you that it is the most difficult and rewarding job that anyone can undertake. They may also tell you that there is no manual that comes with a newborn.

Supernanny premiered in the UK in the summer of 2004. Nearly a year later, in the spring of 2005, Supernanny made it’s US television premiere. Jo Frost was the star of the show. A professional nanny by trade for nearly 30 years, Jo’s job on the show is to help parents who are struggling with the various aspects of raising their child or children.

As a viewer, the show, like many reality shows, is like car wreck on the highway. You need to focus on the road, but you still turn your head to look at the wreckage. While no one is perfect, especially as a parent, I have to question if what I am watching is real or faked for 15 minutes of fame.

Do I recommend it? Maybe.
