THE SCHUMACHER KIDS HAVE IT ALL, BUT THEIR PARENTS
HAVE JUST HAD IT! CAN "SUPERNANNY" HELP?
"Schumacher Family" -- Meet the Schumachers, the ultimate 21st century American family�hard-working parents who strive to give their beautiful children everything�everything, that is, except boundaries, responsibilities and goals. So, instead of gratitude, the kids have attitude, in abundance. The oldest, Jessica (14), belittles her parents for not giving her more expensive things and having a bigger home (their house is quite sizable, but she calls it "a dump"); Alexi (11) is constantly online with a social networking site, pretending to be older and chatting with strangers; Dylan (7) is bored, so he amuses himself by cursing, making obscene gestures, hitting, spitting, kicking and punching. Parents Teri and Brian can't understand why their kids treat them like servants and complain so much. It's a common dynamic, uncommonly extreme, and Jo Frost has a wake-up call for the clueless but well-meaning parents, on "Supernanny," WEDNESDAY, JUNE 18 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (Rebroadcast. OAD 1/9/08)
