Excellent show for teens, entertaining for adults as well

There are a lot of adult themes in this show. However, high schoolers face these issues every day. The producers have done an amazing job of showing teens learning from their mistakes and (eventually) making responsible choices. They also promote safe sex, and educate kids on how to deal with the many challenges our kids can face. I’ll be recommending this to my 16 year old, but I’ll watch it with her. Excellent conversation starters in here!
