Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Boy Meets World follows its characters over several years, so what was once the story of a young boy in junior high in later seasons became about a young man in college. Consequently, those later seasons deal with more adult issues, including sex, partying, a childhood crush that blossoms into adult love, and a best friend who comes from an unstable home life. Family relationships remain in the forefront, with parents questioning and supporting at all the necessary moments. Both tweens and teens can gain insight from the realistic issues.
Is It Any Good?
The main characters are admirable for tween boys and girls. Topanga is an intelligent, strong-willed young lady, dedicated to her school work, friends, and Cory while still maintaining an independent personality. Cory is creative, thoughtful, and insightful, and his world consists of discovering the strength of relationships with family and friends.
Overall, Boy Meets World allows kids to explore realistic situations from the safety of their couches. Parents may gain insight into the confusion or concerns of their own kids while enjoying a look at what makes up this boy's world.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
