Jo Frost (born June 27, 1971) is an English nanny and the central figure of the reality television program Supernanny, of which there are British, American and Brazilian versions. She has also written a number of books on the subject of child care.
Frost was born in London, England to an English father and a Gibraltar-born mother. While having no children of her own, Frost has 21 years' experience in the field of childcare, working as a nanny in the UK and the USA, including work with families on the television series Supernanny, which is shown in 49 countries.
Frost's books are Supernanny: How to Get the Best from Your Children, Ask Supernanny: What Every Parent Wants to Know, and Jo Frost's Confident Baby Care. Her childcare approach focuses on maintaining adult consistent authority, while creating a safe and peaceful environment. She introduced parents to "the naughty step", a variation on the "time-out" method. She suggests solutions for behavioural issues such as adherence to bed time, meal time conduct, behaviour in public, sibling rivalry, and anger management.
In 2010, Frost presented a new show titled 'Jo Frost Extreme Parental Guidance' on Channel 4. The British international format rights are distributed by DRG.
On 5 March 2010 Frost appeared on 'Alan Carr: Chatty Man', talking about her personal life, her new life, her life as a nanny and her new show.
In November 2010, after almost 9 years of helping other families, Jo Frost has announced the end of Supernanny in hopes of starting a family of her own.
Jo is currently working on a second series of Jo Frost: Extreme Parental Guidance for Channel 4 in the UK. The first episode of the second series aired on Channel 4 at 8pm on Wednesday 6th July 2011.
