Great sitcom for the older kids!

I really like this show. I used to watch it a little bit as a child, but understand the context a lot better now as an adult. However, it's a great show for young teens. It is a comedy, but it is more on the serious side. It has a lot of great and deep messages about school, friendship, family and doing the right thing. The teacher Mr Feeny is a great example of that, since he's always trying to lead Cory in the right direction. And I like how the adults aren't "busting" Cory immediately when he have done something wrong, instead they give him time to figure it out himself and do what is right. That definitely make this show stand out. Just be prepared that the storylines will get even more serious and adult in the later seasons. If you want a sitcom that is a little bit more serious, but still enjoyable, I highly recommend it.

Good life lessons , but way too much about Sex

The show has a lot of sexual innuendo and some episodes focus on sex. I am not sure why 6th or 7 th graders would be focused on this or why the show feels the need to focus on this premature subject. I think it is inappropriate at this age and some episodes should be avoided due to this. Most episodes are ok, but parents beware. Its ashamed that the show feels the need to push this agenda so early.
