Did we miss something on diversity?

Welcome to 2019 Llama llama

The outdated gender roles portrayed in this series are just depressing. Anyone with a job is male, all of the female animals are stay at home moms. The dads aren’t shown caring for babies. It could be a good show if the writers could think beyond how the world was in 1960. Not impressed.

The people whining about the lack of a daddy llama or who think it "sends the wrong message" need tofl get over themselves. I guess none of you let your kid's watch Disney movies either because most of the princesses don't have a mother. There is no explicit mention reguarding the fact that llama llama doesn't have a dad and most kid's watching the show aren't going to pick up on it. The woman saying it "promots divorce" how so? There are MANY reasons for not having a parent. My Father died when I was 7. Something that was no one's fault. My children's father also passed away due to an unknown health condition when I was pregnant with my second child. Or perhaps daddy llama is in the military and that's why he's not around. Instead of complaining about it, maybe use it to discuss different family dynamics for a deeper learning opportunity. My daughter is obsessed with llamas and loves the book's. We also love the lessons in the series and personally, I love that single mom's are being represented in a posative light.
