Kiddie Courtroom with Supernanny Jo Frost
After six years and nearly 100 episodes helping parents fix tantrums and calm tears on Supernanny, Jo Frost is turning the tables and letting the kids ask the questions! Only Supernanny is brave enough to get between mother and child in these classic disputes!
Dominic, age 10: "Almost everyone in my class has a Facebook page and I want one too. But my mom says I'm too young. How can I prove to her that I'm old enough for a Facebook page?"
Supernanny: "The legal age for being on Facebook is 13 years old and you're 10 years old. As much as I know you really want to be able to go on it, you are going to have to wait a few more years. However, this is what I would like to suggest to you - why don't you set up your own blog? Why don't you design and create your own Website where you can keep in touch with your own buddies?" Jo suggests. "Then when you're legally of age to be able to join these other websites that you're curious about, you can do that."
Grace, age 10:"I have shoulder-length hair and I think it would look really cool short. My mom won't let me cut it. When can what I do with my hair become my decision?"
Supernanny: "She's become curious about finding her own identity and what she wants for herself," Jo says to Grace's mom, before offering a strategy to help Grace prove that she's thought her decision through. "If you're really keen on having your hair cut short, think about it for a month, you know make your mind up over that period of a month. Talk to your friends who have got their hair short - that maybe you've seen - and that's why you like it? Is it manageable? Do you think that you'll be able to enjoy it? Look through some of those magazines, go and cut out short haircuts ... and then at least at the end of the day you can make that decision."
Sabriah, age 9: "My older sister, she gets to do cooler things and my two younger sisters make a mess tha I have to clean up. Why is it so hard to be a middle child?"
Supernanny: "What happens is the middle child ends up being punished in having to be Cinderella and do everything because the younger ones haven't been taught yet," Jo says. She then gives some advice to Sabriah's mom: "It's going to be important to be fair for your little one here, so that she realizes that although she's doing the things she's supposed to be doing and she does contribute to helping out throughout the house, that you start to teach the younger ones how to do that as well."
Jo also has some ideas for Sabriah: "As for your older sister, well I mean that's part and parcel of being an older sister! You get to do certain things because you are older," she says. Jo then points out the advantage of being the younger one in the family. "You can watch your older sister and make those little decisions in your head about what you like and what you don't like, and by the time you get there you'd have already seen some mistakes your sister has made and then you can think smarter, right?"
