BBC TV
ARE LOOKING FOR A
ROLE
MODEL CANADIAN FAMILY ON THE
ISLAND OF NEWFOUNDLAND

 Do you believe in instilling good manners, good values
and a good work ethic in your teenage children?
Do you believe that
teenagers need discipline and
boundaries? Can you give two British teens the chance to have some much-needed
structure in their lives?

Following the
huge success of the first and second series, the BBC is looking for role model
families to take part in a third series of programmes on parenting. In each
one-hour programme, two British teenagers will be sent to live with a family
abroad, to experience life in their country under their rules. The BBC is filming
all over the world, and has sent overindulged teenagers from the UK to live
with families in various places including Jamaica, India, The USA and South
Africa. In this series we want to send two British
teenagers to the Island of Newfoundland.

We are
looking for a loving family (with children aged 13-18) that has a close family
structure, and rules and boundaries that are respected. We are looking for
parents who are proud of their strong parenting and family values, and who
would be willing to accommodate two British teens for one week and instil in
them the values and morality they demand of their own children. The British
teens will be expected to attend school and/or church, to complete homework and
help with household chores and/or the family business – they will not be guests
in the house but new members of the family. 
They will be expected to engage in volunteer and community activities
during their stay.  Host families will be
paid 1000 USD to cover expenses during the teens stay.  The production team will work closely with
host family and host school to make the arrangements for the week’s filming.

values then please get in touch with us for more information about the series.
