New York, NY � July 16, 2008 � TLC has announced �Take Home Nanny,� a new series that brings a fresh new approach to raising children and maintaining family harmony. The new hour-long show premieres on July 21 at 8 PM ET/PT.
Each week, TLC's very own Nanny Emma Jenner will work with a family with out-of-control kids, and use unique teaching tools and disciplinary actions tailored to suit each child for specific occasions or outings. With events ranging from family reunions to school field trips, Nanny Emma has her hands full as she works to ensure that these children are on their best behavior in just a few short days. While first observing the way the family interacts, Nanny Emma then quickly gets to work instilling her simple yet effective philosophy � be well mannered, be consistent and be patient - first with the parents and then with the kids.
Following all the emotional hurdles leading up to the family's big event, viewers will see Emma's magic be put to the test and witness whether the parents and their kids are able to maintain their newfound harmony.
