AN OVER-SCHEDULED FAMILY OF SEVEN IS ON A FAST TRACK GOING NOWHERE,
ON ABC'S "SUPERNANNY," WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 16
"An-Duan Family" � Angela and Forrest An-Duan have their kids completely overscheduled with over 40 activities a week for the five young children: Christopher, 9; Isabella, 7; twins Lawrence and Benjamin, 6; and Charlotte, 4. The parents feel that they're helping their kids by exposing them to so many lessons -- Chinese, chess, art, piano, tutoring, violin, tennis, Scouts, math class, music appreciation, writer's workshops and more -- but instead everyone is exhausted and stressed out. Often Mom resorts to having the kids eat dinner in the car, and the children don't get to bed until 10:00 p.m., when they've finally finished their homework. The three boys rebel by hitting, punching, kicking, spitting, pulling hair, talking back and picking on their sisters; discipline is non-existent, and the oldest child, Christopher, is in a power struggle with Mom. The parents are so overwhelmed that they've delayed moving into the beautiful new home they finished building six months ago! Can Jo get this family's hectic life simplified and show the parents how to instill discipline? Find out when "Supernanny" airs WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 16 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
