Jo Frost will tackle an "unruly" six-year-old in tonight's (20.07.11) 'Extreme Parental Guidance'.

The childcare expert will take on troublesome Madison in a bid to succeed where "psychiatrists, doctors and homeopathic pills" have failed in the past.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Madison has an older sister, and her parents came to me saying her behaviour was really unruly and out of control.

"They had spent a lot of money on psychiatrists and doctors and homeopathic pills and everything else because her behaviour was so bad."

However, when it came to the crunch, Jo explained all Madison's despairing parents had to do was "look at themselves" in order to solve their parenting problems.

She added: "Madison's behaviour was secondary behaviour created by all these emotions and feelings of being caught in between mum and dad. It wasn't an amicable situation, it wasn't serene - it was volatile, there was a lot of bitterness and resentment.

"So I had a wonderful opportunity to speak to both parents and say to them in the nicest of no nonsense ways - as I do - 'You need to pull your b****y socks up. You need to get yourselves together here'.

"The parents of Madison, they had done everything except look at themselves. If you meet me you kind of get introduced to yourself really.

'Jo Frost: Extreme Parental Guidance' is on Channel 4 tonight (20.07.11) at 8.00pm
