The World's Strictest Parents is a television series developed by TwentyTwenty Television, originally broadcast by BBC. America's CMT (part of MTV Networks) and Australia's Channel Seven have both created localised versions of the program, with the CMT episodes frequently rebroadcasting on MTV.
The concept is that two so-called "unruly" teenagers are sent to live abroad with a strict host family for a week in an attempt to change their behavior. During the week they receive an impact letter from their birth parents with a list of issues they should try to fix.
I normally don't watch much television, and never reality shows. However, when I read that a BBC episode sent two troubled teens from the UK to live with an American homeschool family, I couldn't resist. I was pleasantly surprised.

Apparently, this episode with the homeschool family was one of the post popular of the series. I can see why.
I forgot to post the link the the Peck's website Teaching Self Government.
