New mums should trust themselves, not 'supernannies'
I have to confess I felt a sense of reassurance when I read that supernanny Kathryn Mewes was finding parenthood difficult. Mewes, the star of Channel 4's 'The Three Day Nanny', has just had a baby and has admitted that she is finding the reality of parenthood a lot more difficult than she had anticipated.
Don't get me wrong, I feel sorry for anyone struggling with a newborn. We've all been there - the sleepless nights, the constant ache behind tired eyes, the days that never end, the crying, the feeding, the settling, the burping ... it's relentless.
However, having watched shows like 'The Three Day Nanny' and 'Supernanny', I often found myself feeling like a bad parent.
