Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the family talks openly about their issues. This includes birth control, sex (or lack thereof), boys/girls in the kids' rooms, privacy, dating, and overprotective parenting. The teenagers are starting to deal with having a celebrity father (Hulk Hogan was a famous wrestler in the '80s) while also trying to start their own entertainment careers. Keeping the kids grounded and level-headed is their parents' top priority.
Is It Any Good?
In spite of his quirks, Hogan really does know best. His family has its share of typical bickering and sibling rivalry, but the Hogans also have an impressive ability to resolve conflict with compromise. It's refreshing in an unscripted program to see parents listening to their kids -- and kids listening to their parents.
The Hogans deal with all issues -- no matter how personal -- as a family. Terry and Linda didn't like young Nick dating one girl seriously, so they encouraged him to be open to meeting others; they meet their kids' dates; Terry shopped for tampons for Brooke. Terry is particularly protective of his little girl, as any dad with a 5'10" blonde daughter would be. He has spied on her while she was at the family beach house to make sure she wasn't throwing a party and put a GPS tracking device on her car before she went on a date.
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.
