When the Fed meets supernanny

The repeating theme of a cable television show called “Supernanny” is one of spoiled, undisciplined children with frustrated and overly permissive parents resulting in an out-of-control household. In comes supernanny who meets with the parents, explains basic laws of discipline, and guides the household through the transition from chaos into a functional family. One basic premise is that good behavior is rewarded and bad behavior is punished. Consistency in the enforcement of rules is important. Seems simple, doesn’t it?
