Produced for Channel 4, Jo Frost: Extreme Parental Guidance offers both a wide range of advice and practical assistance to help the UK’s parents solve the problems that are really causing them stress and strain.
Being a parent is the most important journey of your life, but the trouble is no one gives you a map – until now. Jo Frost, Britain’s best known parenting expert, returns with a new series providing mums and dads with the honest, insightful, no-nonsense advice they need.
In this brand new six part series Jo talks to Britain’s parents to find out which issues are really worrying them, whether it’s how many hours their children play computer games or how much exercise they’re getting. In each show she sets out to answer these most pressing of parental questions with a large-scale demonstration involving kids and parents, aiming to debunk myths and reveal crucial facts such as how much children should eat, how many hours of sleep they really need; and the truth about just how young girls are when they start to obsess about their bodies.
In each programme Jo also meets two families suffering from severe versions of the kinds of problems everyone worries about, from a seven-year-old boy who only eats bread and butter to a ten year old so addicted to computer games he spends up to 80 hours a week at the screen.
