We’re seeing a lot of shows that depict bad teenagers lately. Aussie Ladette to Lady starts in two weeks time. Seven has a show in development sending kids to spend time with dominant parents, World’s Strictest Parents.
Even the ABC is getting in on the act, with UK series, My Teen’s a Nightmare. But at least this one seeks to offer some solutions.
Teen expert Sarah Newton (pictured) moves in to sort out misbehaving teens in this 8 part series.
In the first episode 14-year-old Cieran Bamford has a foul mouth, a terrible temper and has been excluded from mainstream school. His bad antics have pushed mum Joanne and step dad Brian to the limit.
In the second ep Newton aims to sort out a 16-year-old troublesome teen Melissa who argues about everything and hates her stepfather.
It premieres 10:30pm Wednesday February 18 on ABC2.
