Weinstein Family On Supernanny

December 11, 2006 12:01 AM by Joe Reality

"Weinstein Family" — The Weinsteins need help. David, the dad, is a trucker, sometimes away from home as many as 10 days in a row, and stay-at-home mom Chia can’t control the children – McKenna (7), Christina (6), Julia (5) and Robert (2). When she tries to correct them, her temperamental brood responds by hitting and kicking her, cursing and other aggressive behavior.

When he’s home, David has zero tolerance for this, but his disciplinary style is more bullying than beneficial. He screams at them until they’re in tears, but feels he’s being put in the role of the "bad guy" because Chia has given up. The biggest issue is the nightly bedtime battle of the wills — a two-and-a-half-hour nightmare of screaming, fighting and tears before anyone gives in to exhaustion. Can Jo Frost tame the Weinstein kids and help turn David from a "raging bull" into a "gentle giant?" "Supernanny" airs MONDAY, DECEMBER 11 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Nick Powell is the creator and executive producer of both the American and British versions of the show. Craig Armstrong and Nick Emmerson are executive producers of the American version. "Supernanny" is produced by Ricochet, Ltd.

    Everything looked hunky-dory when Jo departed the Weinstein home at the end of the show, but I see plenty of opportunity for backsliding and people returning to their old habits. I think Chia, who is obviously a woman who loves her children very much, may need some additional help in the form of assertiveness training, both in regard to h ow she relates to her children and her husband. Otherwise, she will return to being a wimp and a wet rag for other members of the family to disrespect. And David, who acts like a retired former Marine drill sergeant, may need some anger management sessions. Also, he needs to get a different job, where he is home every night. She seems isolated from the adult world and needs some help with the kids, although of the loving parent kind, not the bullying kind.
