The World's Strictest Parents - Alabama
Part 1 of 6
Wednesday, 18th September 2008
9pm to 10pm
Ten unruly British teenagers are sent to live with strict families in five different countries in an experiment to find out the right way to bring up a child.
Naomi and Ross must spend a week under the strict regime of the God-fearing Garnett family in Alabama. The teens immediately flout the rules and Ross is livid when dad Mark goes through his belongings. It's the summer holidays but the teens must work in a homeless shelter downtown, and as they never lift a finger at home working hard is a big shock. Though, it is illegal for teens to smoke in Alabama it doesn't stop Naomi asking one of the homeless men for a cigarette. She endures the wrath of Mark when she gets home, while Ross is in trouble for leaving the shelter without permission.
But after spending another day at the shelter the teens reflect on their actions and Mark takes them out for some quality 'Daddy' time. The Garnetts' strict but loving regime touches Ross and Naomi and they return home determined to mend their ways.
When they set this up I believe that part of the premise would be pitching unruly, but somehow still slightly 'cool', UK teenagers against really strict parents, by which they mean pro-religion foreigners with funny views. With the subtext being that we all get to laugh at the Cristians, again. Well they came up short on this one: Mark, the father from Alabama, is a religious foreigner with funny views, but far more striking is the fact that he is a thoroughly decent man with the welfare and upbringing of children, all children, close to his heart. The 'cool' British kids on the other hand aren't in the least bit cool: they make you want to slap them, or more constructively to hand them over to American Mark for his special attention.
