Supernanny by Jo Frost


Supernanny by Jo Frost

Jo Frost, a.k.a SUPERNANNY, is the answer to every stressed parent's dreams. In Channel 4's prime time series Jo works miracles on unruly children, by dispensing tough love, no-nonsense rules and reassuring us that parents do know best. The SUPERNANNY method gives parents the know-how to tackle any problem area, be it mealtime, bathtime, bedtime, bedwetting, homework, sibling rivalry, aggressive behaviour or a child who just won't do what he or she is told. In an era where parents are bombarded with conflicting or guilt-laden messages at every turn, and sometimes obey their kids' commands rather than the other way around, this is an upbeat, back-to-basics approach to restoring harmony and authority in the home.Jo has a magical way with children, but her methods are simple and can and do work for anyone: regular routine, consistency, verbal warnings, time out after misbehaviour, and rewarding good behaviour with lots of attention. And of course there's Jo's hallmark - the famous naughty step. So whether your ten-month-old won't sleep through the night, or your two-year-old is out of control, Jo knows what to do and can show you how to do it. For anyone who doesn't feel in charge at home, this is a godsend of a book full of brilliantly commonsense advice - the only parenting book you'll ever want.


Don't miss it. We're hoping for a second series ... heartwarming stuff. * Heat (Five Star review) on Channel 4's Supernanny * Kim and Aggie for naughty toddlers * The Times *
