Book Description

27 Mar 2006

Jo Frost, a.k.a SUPERNANNY, is the answer to every stressed parent's dreams. In Channel 4's prime time series Jo works miracles on unruly children, by dispensing tough love, no-nonsense rules and reassuring us that parents do know best. The SUPERNANNY method gives parents the know-how to tackle any problem area, be it mealtime, bathtime, bedtime, bedwetting, homework, sibling rivalry, aggressive behaviour or a child who just won't do what he or she is told. In an era where parents are bombarded with conflicting or guilt-laden messages at every turn, and sometimes obey their kids' commands rather than the other way around, this is an upbeat, back-to-basics approach to restoring harmony and authority in the home.

Jo has a magical way with children, but her methods are simple and can and do work for anyone: regular routine, consistency, verbal warnings, time out after misbehaviour, and rewarding good behaviour with lots of attention. And of course there's Jo's hallmark - the famous naughty step. So whether your ten-month-old won't sleep through the night, or your two-year-old is out of control, Jo knows what to do and can show you how to do it. For anyone who doesn't feel in charge at home, this is a godsend of a book full of brilliantly commonsense advice - the only parenting book you'll ever want.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Super Guide for Both Mums and Dads 8 May 2005
By A Customer
Jo Frost gives many sensible suggesions for parents to try in order to get more compliance from the children. I don't agree with every technique but the majority of them sound like they might work for my family. We have already had success with our picky eaters following the advice in the book. Bedtime is much smoother too after using her strategies for keeping our son in his own bed all night long. I like this book for 3 main reasons: It is parent friendly without clinical or judgmental language, it is set up as a quick reference guide so you do not have to read the entire book to get some specific information to solve a specific behavior problem and it covers a wide spectrum of concerns for the early years (2's, 3's, 4's and 5's). We also like another parent friendly guide called "The Pocket Parent" for the exact same reasons. Both of these discipline guides have offered us many suggestions and solutions to gaining more cooperation from our children.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nanny Books! 20 Oct 2005
This book is very colourful and attractive, but lacked in real content, it was a disappointment. I was hoping it could help me with my 3yr old twin girl's cheekiness and sleep anxiety, but it never really gets to the nitty gritty of behavioral issues or sleep problems.
I would suggest buying "Nanny Wisdom" by Kim Nicholson and Justine Walsh. A friend (that used to be a nanny) recommended this book to me. It has been a fantastic resource for me and my husband.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guide/Bible for Parents 23 Oct 2008
A Kid's Review
We've relied on this book since the birth of our son 6 months ago. It's practical, sensible and has all the answers you need. With such a new thing as parenting to master it's comforting knowing if you have a question there's a book with the answer (possibly a more up-to-date answer than your parents have...) and an explanation. It's also got useful medical/emergency things if you're in a panic which is handy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 22 Jan 2009
This is a fantastic book. Jo Frost is a no nonsense expert on children and how to get the best out of them whilst maintaining their sense of discipline and respect. Very easy to read, easy and simple instructions and the reasons why. I would recommend this book to all parents, my husband loves it and he's not a reader so must be good!

4.0 out of 5 stars simple advice is often the best! 6 May 2009
I bought this for a friend of mine, and then decided maybe I needed it too! I love the TV programme and found this book full of well illustrated advice on enjoying your toddlers and their progression, rather than refering to the 'terrible twos' or 'little terrors'. An enjoyable read with some helpful hints.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 13 Oct 2010
From watching Jo Frost on TV, this book explains everything and you can store all the advice on the bookshelf to refer to whenever you need it, rather than having to remember it all. Great buy for any parent. Even before they have children.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good "looking" book but lacks detail 1 April 2005
Supernanny is certainly a good looking book. A lot of effort went into taking a little bit of information and making it go far. Seems like there was more effort put into the graphic arts aspect of Supernanny than to the actual content. I found this very disappointing. I think I could have gotten the same information from watching two or three episodes of Nanny 911 whilst visiting the states. If you are experiencing nothing more severe than whinny behavior this might be a helpful text. But, if you are experiencing problems more challenging than the most basic of parenting problems I would suggest that you look elsewhere. There are many books on the market that were written by educated professionals (like family therapists) that DO provide the important details missing from Supernanny. Personally, I liked "Systemic Parenting: An Exploration of the Parenting Big Picture" written by parenting expert and family therapist Mark Gaskill. If you compare these books side by side the lack of depth found in Supernanny becomes very obvious.
