I don’t know how I’ve managed to make it in life without a show called “World’s Strictest Parents”. No, I jest. But seriously, I am always “tsking” about “kids these days” and the lack of parenting that seems to be really rampant, especially in kids who are younger than ever.
So when I was reading about this show, I was all kinds of excited. Because, while there are shows that deal with parenting issues and unruly children, there has never really been anything that showcases parenting done right… and by that, I mean strict parenting. Yes, I’m one of those moms– the kind who tells her kids no (gasp!) and frequently!
The show is on CMT and it documents the journey of two unruly teens from different families as they are forced to adapt to the rules and regulations of very strict host parents. They are forced to live under different standards from their families back home. The misbehaving teens are subject to punishment for breaking rules and skipping chores while the strict parents attempt to mend their ways.
The season finale is tomorrow (Sunday) night and looks to be interesting:
“Family and faith are central to everything the Forsyths do. They rarely leave their Arkansas home, which includes a giant family camp where they encourage others to enjoy their daily diet of worship, work and wholesome recreational activities.
For the next week they’ll take in a very different kind of visitor: two rebellious teenagers, whose bad behavior has got the better of their own parents. But can a stay with Forsyths — and exposure to their very traditional family values – transform the teens into model citizens?”
Maybe I’ll catch it! It airs on CMT at 5PM/4PM CST.
