'Supernanny' quits to find 'more balance'

Forget taking care of other people's kids – "Supernanny" Jo Frost just wants some to call her own. And that's exactly why the British disciplinarian is ending her popular ABC series after six seasons.

"I have decided to hang up my cape," 39-year-old Frost tells the New York Post. "It was a very conscious decision, through much reflection. But I need to create more balance in my life."

That includes buying a home, finding love and having children.

"Proper balance will allow me to date and have a relationship and look at my own future of having a family," says the single Frost, who, as TV's "Supernanny," spends 46 weeks out of the year on the road. "I am definitely excited about dating and being in a committed relationship. That is all exciting stuff for me around the corner."

But don't expect Frost to go away for good. The star, who has written three best-selling books and worked with 155 families over the course of the hit show, has several new projects in development and says there has been "much interest" in bringing her UK series, "Extreme Parental Guidance," to America.

"I don't think you will be seeing less of me," she tells the Post. "I just think it will be a different way that you see me."

    Jane K, you either were one of the people on the show, or saw yourself in some of them. Of course it's edited to show the extremes of good and bad parenting. It helps people to see their own failings and successes, and guides them away from those failures. A typical self-help show.

    Good Riddance, SuperNinny! Your show created drama when it was 'lacking' and your clever editing left some parents looking undeservedly awful. You might have meant well, but you were in it for the ratings and sometimes forgot to be there for the good of the families.

    I think that is wonderful. She taught me great tips to parent my son.

    Thank you for all you've done to help misguided, lazy, and undisciplined parents over the last few years. It should be a law to have one of you in every household!

    Rumor is that Frost will now concentrate on her other primary interest of eating.

      What a terrible thing to say. Ms Frost has had a wonderful career and helped many many families. It is a shame you have to be so disrespectful to a lady who is beautiful inside and out..is it maybe jealousy on your part that she is likely a much better person than you?
