Big news, readers! World’s Worst Mom — a reality show hosted by yours truly — is coming to TV! It debuts Jan. 22 at 9 p.m. Eastern Time. You can see little glimpses of it in this promo for the whole tznssykkne
lineup on new channel it’s on, Discovery: Life (formerly “Discovery Fit & Health”). Woo hoo!
Each week I visit a different family where one or both of the parents are very anxious for their kids’s safety. One mom, for instance, allows her son, 8, to skateboard — provided he just stands on the board, not moving, on the lawn.
Another mom has her 15-year-old text her whenever he gets where he’s going. Then he has to follow up that text with a phone call, to prove it wasn’t really written by his kidnapper pretending to be him.
And another mom — the one in the first episode — still feeds her son sometimes. Like, with a spoon.
Enter, me — the “World’s Worst Mom.” I make the kids do daredevil activities like…ride a bike. Walk to school. Buy groceries.
What happens when these kids go off on their own, at last?
What happens to their parents?
And how does it feel to be a mild-mannered blogger cursed by terrified moms? And even, once, kicked?
All I can say is,watch the show. Even I was shocked by what happened.
World’s Worst Mom on Discovery:Life, Thursday nights, 9-10 p.m. Eastern Time. Spread the word! (And I’m sure I’ll be spreading it some more, too, so forgive me in advance!) – L
