Nine has told TV Blackbox that this show won’t air this year due to COVID-19 interrupting production, but remains in development until the timing is right.
Re-confirmed at Nine’s 2021 upfronts today with Jo Frost as host.
From today’s upfronts
THE PARENT JURY
Global parenting expert Jo Frost unleashes an experiment that challenges parenting like never before in The Parent Jury . In this controversial new series, she dares mums and dads who believe their parenting style is the best to put themselves to the test.
Opinionated mothers and fathers with diverse parenting techniques will take turns judging each other’s style. From helicopter parents to tiger parents, free-range parents and social media parents to extreme authoritarians, they will all show how they raise their families while trying to influence everyone else that their way is the best.
The Parent Jury is produced by Eureka for Nine.
So Jo will fly over here or she’ll be on a tv screen i wonder… same with Celeb Apprentice with Alan Sugar, I guess they can come over here as long as they do the quarantine?
Could Ally be the studio host with Jo Frost retained as the expert?
In an interview with Mediaweek about Lego Masters, Nine’s head of content, production and development Adrian Swift has revealed The Parent Jury will now be known as Parental Guidance.
Good. They need to get away from the outdated trend of “The xxxxx” as titles for shows. They’re often meaningless and forgetful.
Now it sounds like a show about the PG classification. Riveting
Let me guess, potential trademark/copyright issues? The anti-junk food advertising to children lobby group Parents’ Voice was previously known as The Parents Jury.
Parenting. Everyone’s got an opinion. But which way is the right way?
Ally Langdon and Australian parenting expert Dr. Justin Coulson team up with ten brave sets of parents with very different parenting styles, putting their methods to the ultimate test to determine who has Australia’s best parenting stylein Channel 9’s raw and confronting new series, Parental Guidance .
Opinionated parents with diverse parenting techniques will take turns judging each other’s style through a series of the toughest challenges ever attempted, designed to put their style to the ultimate test which typically results in chaos, tears, and very funny fails.
From helicopter parents to tiger parents, free-range and routine parents to extreme authoritarians, they will all show how they raise their families while trying to influence everyone else that their parenting style is best.
Parental Guidance takes us behind the closed family doors of parenthood, and how we ourselves were parented, to find out how to do it right, right now. When it comes to modern-day parenting, is anyone really nailing it? The search for Australia’s best parenting style is coming to Channel 9 in 2021.
Parental Guidance is produced by Eureka for the 9Network.
Just saw an extended promo for this. Looks really good.
I wonder which slot this show might air in. Could be a 7.30 show alongside Snack Masters later this year.
Here is the extended promo.
Looks like we will have Parental Guidance on Mondays with Snackmasters on Sundays after The Block. None of those shows look like they could be stripped so what else has Nine got for Tuesday and Wednesday? Hopefully not factual repeats.
Monday 1 November at 7.30pm
Every Australian parent will be comparing and asking whether their parenting ways are right when Channel 9’s groundbreaking new series, Parental Guidance, premieres Monday, November 1, at 7.30pm.
When it comes to modern-day parenting, none of us are nailing it. But we all have an opinion on how it should be done! Is strict parenting better than letting your kids run free? Do tiger parents produce smarter kids than allowing children to develop naturally?
Ally Langdon and Australian parenting expert Dr Justin Coulson put opinionated parents, with diverse parenting methods, to the ultimate test through a series of the toughest challenges imaginable in the search for Australia’s best parenting style.
Every episode the challenges escalate in difficulty, pushing families to their most hilarious and emotional limits to discover their strengths and the areas they can improve. Here they’ll laugh at their fails, share advice and most importantly celebrate their successes, even when the parent in question can’t see it for themselves.
Do you smack your child? Would your child go off with a stranger? How do you deal with discipline? Do you let your child run free? How would your child react without screen time for 24hours? Parental Guidance will change the conversation around these fundamental parenting issues in Australia.
These outspoken parents will take turns judging each other’s style, tackling controversial approaches to parenting that will divide opinion, cause spirited debate and be very uncomfortable for some.

As expected, this program is stripped across the week.
This should be a once a week show.
I can see that Nine wants to keep first run shows on during the week but this is an odd show to strip across the week.
