The takeaway: if you invite Supernanny Jo Frost to your house and ask her to evaluate your rapport with your unruly children, and then respond to her criticism with an arrogantly indifferent attitude, do not be surprised if she beats your ass and then hands it back to you.
I think the reason I like this show–other than the inherent fun I get in judging the hapless parents who go on the show–is that I wish I had a Jo who would come to my house and berate me for things I want to improve about myself. “What are you doing, watching television? Your dog is begging you for a walk! Look at the dishes sitting by the sink! Are you an adult or aren’t you?”
Maybe my New Year’s resolution will be to develop my inner Jo.
