Transcript for Supernanny Jo Frost's parenting advice
America by storm when she entered our TV screens to help overwhelmed parents get their families in shape. Now, nanny Jo is back and taking on new families with new problems. Take a look. Be careful what you wish for. Because I'm here. It's supernanny. Parenting, it's a struggle. It's like a constant battle. They're like a pack of wild animals. The world has changed. We're in the technology era. Calling names. Are you prepared to own the consequences of your behavior? It depends on what the consequences are. Your wife leaving you. Please welcome supernanny Jo Nice to see you. How are you? Happy new year. Happy new year. Michael was asking everybody their new year's resolutions if you have one. I need to dance more this year, seriously. I love to dance, and you can see I have been doing a lot of work but I like the balance of going out and dance. I love to dance. And congratulations in order, they brought the show back. "Supernanny." What can we look forward to this season? So much happening. It's a completely different show in the respects that the show has opened up to all different ages. You know, any type of family. Because what is family? It's different to us all. We're looks at hot topics really in society. You know, taking a look at mental illness, looking at families in military, blended families. Parental challenges but looking at the external issues as well that we're trying to really navigate. Working two jobs, finding the balance with home. You know, there are dads at home looking after kids, moms in the workforce. Look at military families. It's the entire family and helping them as well. You know, I've been helping families that have firefighters around the world and Australia we've been talking about and the importance of that. Lot of issues that are important to families and there are a lot of families out there right now that are hurting. Find the balance. We've been having some problems with nene that we'd like to talk to you about. We have some parents in the audience that need some advice. First up, we have Sarina. I'm a mom of three. A 16-year-old, 3-year-old and a 2-year-old. Hand full. Yes. My husband and I have the biggest problem with my 2-year-old. He doesn't like to sit down and eat. Takes the food, throws it on the floor. He may come back later and eat it off the floor. Doesn't want to sit. Twofold and that is, one, when you're at the table with 2-year-old it's about having conversation with them. It's about keeping them really focused on what they're eating but also on a conversation, so they become a part of the table, right, good table manners and the social aspect of doing that. However, at that age they're also learning those executive functioning skills, learning how to focus, how to follow through. How sit longer. Their attention span and focus. When you're doing your early learning with your child in the mornings, because that's when they have been rested, hand in hand is what will help at the dinner table. Focus on doing a puzzle and following through with that. Reading, sitting down while you're reading. Early learning skills will help that child at the table when it comes to meal time. Do both. It's a balance. Thank you, Sarina. Next up we have Anna. I have two daughters, one is 17 and one is 6. My 6-year-old is constantly on her tablet and she's constantly on her phone, especially during mealtimes. How can I break that cycle for the new year? In two seconds. In two seconds. Really, make it a rule. It's a household rule you have to be able to embrace technology. We're in the technology era, right, but you have to have house rules as well. If there's limited time in which they have, you regulate that as a parent. And make it a house rule, period. We're at the table, we have healthy conversations. What's going on? Who are your friends? What are you doing, what are their interests? You have a daughter at an age where if you don't keep up the communication you won't know where she is and knowing about her world. Also, you got a younger one watching by example. You lead by example and then have your children follow that and you have a much better experience, right, when it comes to sitting at the table and having those conversations with both of your children and it's led by you, the parent. Thank you so much. Thank you so much for being here.
