Supernanny Jo Frost Death
The parenting tips which “Supernanny” Jo gave went from being ill-informed to dead wrong in a matter of seconds with the dangerous advice given to the Joliet (sp) family and their son Patrick.
She told these parents who have “trouble forgetting the trauma” they should “recognize their son’s heart condition has not hindered him to understand here in his brain to understand to do things.” – is absolutely false and frightening.
Patrick’s medical history absolutely would change his brain and make his regulatory system more sensitive, less efficient and unable to cope with what was being asked of him.
Jo’s advice flies in the face of current brain science and what any qualified parent educator or developmental expert would tell you.
