What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Growing Up McGhee features the McGhee children's lives six years after becoming the first sextuplets born in Ohio. Family, parenting, and child raising are all addressed, but there are brief discussions about conceiving and having children. There's some occasional, mild bickering between the children, but nothing to really be concerned about.

What's the story?

GROWING UP MCGHEE, a spin-off of the unscripted series Six Little McGhees, is a reality series featuring Mia and Rozonno McGhee as they raise their sextuplets and run their carpet cleaning business. Olivia, Madison, Elijah, Issac, Josiah, and Rozonno Jr. are now energetic six year-olds, all of who attend school and have strong, distinct personalities. While their parents do their best to keep a routine going and keep things organized, the energetic bunch always seems to be up to something, whether it’s making a mess in their rooms, or having fun with Grandma Cilky. There’s never a dull moment, but the McGhees approach it with a positive spirit and good humor. 

Is it any good?

This lighthearted series features the young, energetic family as they go through their daily routines, enjoy weekend outings, and look for balance in their lives. While their parents work hard to keep it together and resolve every child-initiated crisis, the rambunctious children never stop being playful and happy.

Mia and Ronzonno appear committed to teaching their children strong values, setting boundaries, and finding constructive ways of disciplining them. But they have a sense of humor, and openly exhibit obvious love and pride for their children, even when they are challenging. It is their genuineness that makes Growing Up McGhee worth the watch.
