Wanted: Terrible teens, tough parents
The producers of ABC's "Supernanny" are in town this week casting for a new show dubbed "The World's Strictest Parents." They're looking for teens needing a firm hand and parents who can kick butt and take names.
And they thought our humble city might provide both. How flattering.
Specifically, they're looking for parents with family values, strong religious beliefs, conservatives (as opposed to the previous two categories?), eco-friendly beliefs, farmers and families with interesting stories.
On the teen side, they want teens with unique interests, urbanites, technically savvy teens, slobs, surfers, liberals, affluent teens and just generally defiant teens.
If you want to nominate a family or a teen, you can call 1-888-418-3367, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or go to www.theworldsstrictestparents.com.
