Jo the Super Nanny

Written by kathy on Tuesday, 19 of September 2006 at 8:33 pm

I admit it, I watch Super Nanny sometimes and last night was like being there for me. My boys are not nearly as bad as Rosemary’s three boys, but I could relate to much of what she and her husband John are going through.

My boys don’t listen to me unless I’m yelling. I can ask nicely twice for them to stop and they do nothing until the THIRD ASK . I take things away. I count to three. I make them sit in time-out.

Nothing seems to work.

And, like Rosemary and John, I have felt like giving up. Just let them do what they want. I don’t want to yell every day. But, that is exactly what Rosemary and John did and why they were on the show. They gave up. Their kids did WHATEVER they wanted. They went to bed when they wanted. They never cleaned up their rooms. They broke their toys and didn’t clean up the mess. They were even worse in school and after-school.

So, the good news is that I haven’t given up. I’ve thought about it. I’ve really wanted to walk away, but I haven’t. And therein lies the hope.

That and I’ve admitted to watching the damn show, so that’s the first step toward recovery.
