"Cantoni Family" — Nina and Paul Cantoni are at odds on how to raise
their children — Nicholas, 6, Gabrielle, 3, and Giana, 10 months. Mom
is overwhelmed, especially by the headstrong Gabby who is prone to
biting and tends to dominate the family dynamic. Dad is wrapped around
Gabby’s finger, and thinks he’s defusing the tantrums by giving into
them, undermining Mom as she tries to hold a hard line.
Big brother Nicholas could use more quality time with Dad, but strives to get attention by acting out and talking back. Bedtime is a farce — the household falls into turmoil as Gabby stalls goodnights by requesting drink after drink, changing her mind about her beverage preference, with Dad hopping to it.
This family is spiraling out of control, and even Supernanny pegs Paul as a "big marshmallow" when it comes to discipline. Can Jo get these parents on the same page? Find out, on "Supernanny," MONDAY, MAY 28 (10:00-11:00 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 is executive producer and Tony Yates the co-executive producer of the American version. "Supernanny" is produced by Ricochet, Ltd.
