My daughter and I watch this show together. I think it's a good social lesson on how not to raise your kids. Our favorite quote has been "If I don't make cheerleading, I don't know what I'll do. Cheerleading is my life." We have great discussions on how there is more to life than popularity, cheerleading and putting all your eggs in one basket. Kids need to be more well rounded and realize that if you miss being a kid that you'll never get that time back. The girls and coaches are over the top.
