Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (3):

Kids say the darnedest things, and when prompted, they can give some pretty insightful advice as well. Set them up with a "what would you do?" scenario, and they're off and running with nuggets of wisdom that are run the gamut from charming to naïve to surprisingly spot-on. With comedy legend Burnett moderating the conversation and interjecting with her own zingers now and then, this panel show is a lighthearted commentary on life's familiar woes.

Truly family-friendly entertainment can be difficult to find these days, but A Little Help with Carol Burnett fits the bill. With such young panelists, the content is free of controversy or innuendo of any kind. The adults' dilemmas are simplistic but generally relatable at any age, and similarly the kids' insight can be elevated or lowered in complexity to apply to specific life experiences. If nothing else, this series is a great tool for starting conversations with your kids about real-life issues of many different sorts.

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.
