I have to be really honest here.
Some one you may find this to be a deal breaker and be forced to delete my blog from your brain and computer. Some of you might just want to reach through your computer and slap me upside the head, some of you might nod silently to yourself and say, "I knew it! Heathen!"
But I will admit it anyway.
I love television.
I enjoy sitting in my room at night and watching TV. I love Designed to Sell on HGTV and the Real Housewives of New York and Life(soon to be canceled, click here or here to try and save it) and the Hills and Taking the Stage and The Dog Whisperer and The Last Cake Standing Challenge on Food Network.
I don't hardly watch any TV during the day, if its on we are watching PBS kids or Disney or Nick.
But this past Sunday, I found my new favorite show.
Its funny. Its heartbreaking. Its drama! Its endearing. It is…
The Worlds Strictest Parents on CMT.
Basically, troubled kids get sent off to live with a 'balanced' family. The first show I saw, the kids went to live with a 'deeply' religious household. (BTW, they were a God fearing, Bible reading family. I guess people think that's extreme.)
Those kids were shown limits and given rules and expected to give respect where it was due. Most importantly; they screwed up, were delivered consequences, but were then shown love and compassion.
And they thrived. Those kids were so desperate for structure! It just touched my heart in a hundred different ways.
Yeah CMT for putting a show on TV with good values and a good message! Its on Sundays around these parts, I hope you can give it a watch!
