  • My household is CRAZY and sometimes I wish I could call the Super Nanny for help. But I have to tell you, when I watch the show, I really start feeling like my CRAZY isn't as CRAZY as I think!

  • I love that show - and my 3 kids are grownup, in college, and one in hs school still. It's tons of fun to see that how I parent is a way that's widely used.

    When my first child was a baby 1 year and a half old - his first really really bad temper tantrum was in a mall - he fell to the floor in the middle of the row center mall slamming his fists on the floor and screaming and wailing away - my husband and I then were SO shocked we just stood there - we didn't even tell him no on anything. He was playing and then collapsed freaked out!!!!

    That was close to the last time he did that - next two kids I knew to leave a store immediately with behavior like that!!!!!

    I'm really confused that some parents are afraid literally shaking crying afraid to say no to a kid of any age. I've suggested SuperNanny to moms who are really worried and anxious to say no to any age kid even older teens and older than that.

  • I watch it so I can realize my kids were not, and are not, so bad after all.

  • I love the show too. As someone else said, it makes me think my crazy really isn't crazy.

    I think I've learned a lot from the shows. I've been known to cry through a show or two, too.

  • Love it! I love to see that my parenting style is mimicked on her show - and it DOES work!

  • I like the show but Idk how I'd take it if someone else were to come into my house telling me how to raise my kids and some of her ideas do not work! I have a 7 yr. old who blows fire when he's angry and don't like things and we've tried a naughty step well he sits for ten minutes and is back up afterwards even after his apology doing the same thing he was before sometimes kids just need a little spat on the butt to get their attention that's what works for me and it stops his behaviour
