Are your kids out of control?
Are you at the end of your tether?
Do you want your life back?
You need Supernanny!

Meet Supernanny Jo Frost, a modern-day Mary Poppins here to rescue today's beleaguered parents by offering up her practical, road-tested methods of childrearing in an indispensable new book based on her ABC-TV series. With over 15 years of experience, Jo has seen it all — from meals where food ends up all over the floor and tantrums at bedtime, to just plain stressed-out parents. Her strategies include:

  • Preventing fussy eaters from taking over mealtimes
  • Resolving your child's sleep problems, once and for all
  • Avoiding sibling rivalry battles
  • How to talk so your children will listen
  • How to enjoy parenting without its feeling like a chore
  • How to establish a routine that works for you
  • How to bridge the gap between you and your children
  • How to get the most from your children and yourself
Jo's methods are simple and will work for everyone: a regular routine and defined boundaries and consistency, backed up with plenty of love and attention. So whether your 2-year-old won't sleep through the night or your 4-year-old is on the rampage, Jo knows exactly what to do, and will show you how to do it. If you're one of those stressed-out parents who's desperate for a more peaceful home, Supernanny will be the answer to your prayers.

Synopsis:

Jo Frost, a.k.a "Supernanny," is the answer to every stressed parent's dreams. In ABC's primetime series, Jo works miracles on problem children by dispensing 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 behavior, 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.

Chapters include:

  • Ages and Stages
  • Routines and Rules
  • Setting Boundaries
  • Dressing
  • Toilet Training
  • Eating
  • Social Skills
  • Bedtime
  • Quality Time

Synopsis:

Meet Supernanny Jo Frost, a modern-day Mary Poppins here to rescue today's beleaguered parents by offering up her practical, road-tested methods of childrearing in an indispensable new book based on her upcoming ABC-TV series.

Jo Frost, a.k.a. Supernanny, is the answer to every stressed-out parent's dreams. In ABC's upcoming primetime TV series by the same name, Jo works miracles on problem children by dispensing hard-won wisdom and reassuring us that parents really do know best. The Supernanny method gives parents the know-how to tackle problem areas such as mealtime, bath time, bedtime, bedwetting, homework, sibling rivalry, aggressive behavior, or a child who just won't do what he or she is told to do.

Divided into action-oriented problem and solution sections, Supernanny will show parents how to restore harmony and authority in the home using the Supernanny's ten basic rules and her effective, no-nonsense approach to problem-solving. For example:

Problem: What if your child refuses to go to bed? Supernanny Solution: Develop a bedtime routine so that the child can get used to a consistent pattern that she is not going to be able to change or manipulate. A routine will set up a calming sequence of events that will be designed to help the child relax.

Problem: Toilet-training Supernanny Solution: Prepare your child by taking any hint of shame or disgust out of what is simply a natural fact of life. Keep the door open, bring her into the bathroom with you, and explain what's happening, including the use of toilet paper and the washing of hands afterward.
