Tonight on a brand new episode of Supernanny on ABC Jo Frost travels to SC to help another out of control family whose two young boys are taught to lift weights and use foul language. Having absolutely no respect for their parents, will Jo be able to help this family before it’s too late? Keep reading to find out!
Tonight we met the Benton Family of SC on Supernanny on ABC. Mom, Amber cannot deal with her out of control sons any longer. Rivers, 10 and Hunter, 8 are using foul language and have been trained by dad to lift weights. These boys have no respect for their parents, and discipline is not present in this home, no wonder they are acting out.
Supernanny Jo sits down with Hunter and quickly finds out that mom and dad are not happy and he has heard mom telling dad to “get out of her life” and that she wants a divorce. Disturbed by this, Jo decides it is time to sit down with Amber and Greg and get to the bottom of it. Amber is in tears and Greg completely shuts down as he refuses to talk. When they finally do start talking, it is more like a wrestling match. Jo brings in a “timer” so each of them can take turns talking and maybe actually hear what the other has to say.
After finally understanding what each has to say, they both realize that they need to save their family before it is too late. Supernanny Jo Frost then goes over all the discipline steps with them and helps them follow them through. Even after showing them the ropes, Amber is still struggling with all the steps and Greg is still not properly following through either. Jo is persistent though and after continuing her training, she leaves the family for a few days to see how they will do without her.
Next on Supernanny on ABC Jo returns to see how Amber and Greg fared while she was away. She is appalled to learn that neither of them followed through as she taught and they all decide they need more training and practice as they vow to get it right.
Before she leaves Supernanny gets Greg to spend some quality time with his boys that does not include anything physical. Instead they look over baby photos while sitting outside and after a little while Hunter starts to become disrespectful. Greg sends him into time out and Jo is thrilled to see how well he handled it and followed through. She now knows she can leave this family in harmony. Another successful family for Jo Frost!
