A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Families learn how to connect with each other, even when it's challenging. By utilizing therapists, life coaches, and motivational speakers, families engage in specific ways to overcome difficult tasks and learn how to bond with one another.
Being together as a family is a healthy and worthwhile investment of time. Be silly. Enjoy the people you live with. Change can be positive. Putting away devices can pay off. Slow down and enjoy life. Family can mean many things. Stay open to love. Cut loose sometimes. Don't be afraid to try something new. Memories are important. Make an effort to connect. Laugh more.
Positive Role Models
Parents are communicative, willing to connect, and love their families. The "leaders" are upbeat, committed to their calling of creating healthy family dynamics.
Families and journey "guides" hail from diverse backgrounds and ethnicities.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Family Reboot is a reality show that focuses on helping families reconnect. Parents and kids are instructed to put all of their electronic devices (cell phones, tablets, laptops, etc.) in a bag so that they can't access them during their "journey." The diverse group of featured families includes military veterans and those who've survived traumatic situations (one father was a first responder on 9/11). Emotional issues are addressed in a group setting, including siblings growing apart, parents working too much, families not spending enough time together without distractions. Adoption is discussed. Language includes "damn."
Is It Any Good?

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.
