The Personal Touch
Supernanny Jo Frost hopes to do nothing less than change the perception of Americans about the job of a nanny. "In England being a nanny is seen as a professional job that provides a service and allows parents to connect on a personal level with their children's caregiver," says Frost. "Here it's very much seen as babysitting. I hope my show has increased the recognition and appreciation of the job of the nanny in America."
Frost says that on the show she goes above and beyond the job description of a nanny, but she still has plenty of tips for the average family who wants to hire a nanny and make the relationship work for the long term.
