Supernanny is a reality show for parents who are having a difficult time raising their children. The show stars Jo Frost, a professional nanny who has a strong background in childcare. On each new episode of the show, Jo, the Supernanny, enters a new home with a new family. She will stay with the family for several days in order to help them solve their problems. On the first day of her stay, Jo simply observes the family. She watches the parents and children as they go about their daily routines and interact together. She also consults the parents and children, asking them what they believe the problems are and how they feel about each situation. Jo then comes up with plans to begin correcting certain behavioral problems. On the next day of her stay, Jo shows the family her ideas and helps them begin implementing new rules or routines that will make life easier for the entire family. Although Jo is typically asked to deal with children who will not obey rules, she always takes the children's views and issues into consideration. Her plans usually offer fair sets of rules with both rewards for good behavior and fair punishments for bad behavior. This helps to ensure that the children want to act well. Jo also helps the parents understand what will work and how they should change their childcare approach. After the new rules are implemented, Jo leaves the family for a day or two. The cameras keep rolling, though, so that Jo can see how the family works with her new plans while she is not there. Jo then returns to the family and goes over the footage with them. She then helps them correct their mistakes so that they can work together even more efficiently. When Jo believes the family is ready to begin implementing the new rules on their own, she leaves to move on to her next case. Usually, Jo will have completely changed how the family thinks and acts towards each other. Families are often very grateful for the assistance Jo has given them.
