It’s been about a year since Jo Frost quit Supernanny, and Shed Media US in conjunction with the Lifetime network have been searching for America’s next Supernanny. They put out a casting call for a “tough but loving” Supernanny with the ability to “determine highly emotional relationship problems” who had “background and experience to coach parents and kids with constructive, enlightening, and results-driven criticism.” Have they found an American homegrown Supernanny?
Yes! America’s newest Supernanny is Deborah Tillman, a Virginia mother-of-one and a childcare specialist. ”I feel blessed and privileged that I have been chosen to do exactly what I was put on earth to do–and that is to help children and families come together, get it together, and stay together,” Tillman says in a statement.
Tillman was chosen from over 400 candidates and has over 19 years of experience working with children. Horrified by the way she saw several child care providers treat her son, Tillman quit her job as an accountant in 1992 to start a home-based school for her son and a few other children. Now, she owns several leaning centers in Virginia. Tillman has lead many workshops on child care throughout the nation and is the author of the book Stepping Out on Faith, a guide to opening a quality child care center.
As America’s Supernanny, Tillman will visit the homes of parents throughout the United States seeking advise on how to best raise their children. The eight-episode series of America’s Supernanny will premiere on Lifetime on November 29 at 9/8 pm CT. Are you excited about America’s Supernanny?
