Thursday 15th December (and the following day on Hulu) on the American channel ABC will premiere The Parent Test, described as "a provocative look at parenting”.
Based on a hit Australian television format, actually in The Parent Test there seems to be nothing provocative, limiting itself to present and compare different parenting styles. 12 families, with different approaches to the education of their children (the over-protective, the new-age, the intensive, the strict…) are put under the microscope in a kind of parenting stress test and will share learnings about emotional topics that compare the multiple styles of parenting.
2 specialist hosts in studio moderate the program that doesn’t seem to show anything new or remarkable.
