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.

Had potential but a teenager seemingly calling the shots is stupid

I wouldnt want my teens watching it because the teenager lily is very disrespectful. I dont need my kids saying everyone else is allowed to talk smack to their parents. And on the show, it seems lily calls the shots not the parents. Nope, i def would not recommend

Bring it BACK... HARD!

This show MUST go on. Even if they have to recast and a new network has to buy it. We don't have cable subscription, only Netflix. Netflix only has 3 seasons, so I'm assuming it's no longer airing new episodes. If that's true, BIG mistake. I could watch this show for years more, even on binge sessions. I love it. As a parent of 4 myself, I find it relatable with added humor of things we would never allow to fly and some parenting tricks we should have tried to get away with. It's well written with great acting and realistic characters.
