A Spokane-area couple tackles rebellious children on a “Supernanny” episode airing 9 p.m. Friday on Lifetime.
When Crystal Tobeck and Jeff Lawrence met, they doubled their family and got a second chance at love. But the episode shows how the children clash with controlling parents in the new blended family.
“Supernanny” is a series hosted by child-rearing expert Jo Frost, who helps stressed-out parents with social and behavioral challenges, as well as modern-day family issues.
With Tobeck and Lawrence, Frost handles problems between the parents and kids who are acting out. One child takes money from his father. Two children fight as they fold laundry.
Friday’s show includes a talk Frost has alone with four children asking their feelings about what’s happening in the home.
When she shares that conversation with the parents, Frost is surprised to learn they have their own cameras inside the home to watch their kids, so they heard every word.
In various episodes, Frost offers real-life solutions to parents with advice, techniques and tips to iron out chaos and help the families evolve.
The show deals with issues that span the spectrum of parenting challenges – from postpartum depression and ADHD, to kids obsessed with electronic devices.
