The World's Strictest Parents

There are as many ways of raising children as there are countries in the world – but are some methods better than others?

Each week 2 teens leave their own fraught family lives to spend 10 days living under the rules and rooves of some of the ‘World’s Strictest Parents’. From Jaipur to Jamaica and Accra to Alabama, discontented Brits have met head on with the daily discipline, educational values and moral principles of parents who believe that enforcing their beliefs and discipline is the best way to raise a well balanced child. Adapting to a new life style isn’t easy but as the week unfolds, living with firm rules and enforced consequences will produce genuine emotional journeys and personal turnarounds in these kid’s behaviours. Time away from home gives the teenagers an opportunity to reflect on the relationships they have with their parents in England, and often just how little they do to enhance family life at home. From culture shock to personal enrichment, via temper tantrums and tear jerking re-unions, these teenagers experience a new perspective on family life - and learn to feel the benefits.
