In this week’s episode of Supernanny, Jo Frost pays a visit to the Park family. In a Supernanny first, Jo will actually help out another nanny, who is in over her head. The Park family consists of Michael, Heather, and their three children.
The three children are six year old Kyle, four year old Farley, and two year old Pierce. Kyle suffers from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Kyle was on medication for ADHD, but he is now off the medication, because his parents didn’t feel it was working.
The children’s nanny is named Alejandra. Alejandra has little control over Kyle and is unable to keep him from terrorizing his younger siblings. None of the children are good at following instructions. They sometimes disobey and take dangerous risks like playing in the swimming pool, dangling from a banister, or playing with scissors. The children not only hit each other, but they hit their parents and the nanny as well.
Jo Frost confronts Heather over taking Kyle off his medication without having an alternative plan on dealing with his behavior. Can Jo Frost help the parents and nanny get control of the children? Supernanny airs on Friday, October 17 from 9 PM to 10 PM ET on ABC.
