Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is a slice-of-life show highlighting how the Thompson family lead their daily lives. Although unconventional, and sometimes downright trashy, I have to say, I'd pick this family drama over Keeping up with the Kardashians any day! They're quirky, funny, confident in who they are, and most importantly, they're REAL, which is so rare to find in TV personas nowadays. They do things that most of us find downright embarrassing on camera, make us laugh, gross us out, make us feel for them, and sometimes, want to change the channel. While it depends on the child, I'd personally rate this "On" for kids 10 and older. While there is some minor swearing, there is no graphic violence, drug use, or sexual conduct. While they do drink sometimes, there is not a heavy emphasis on it, and the only sexual content in the show lies with the family's 17 year old daughter - a new mother. I listed consumerism as one of them as well; it's not a huge deal, but the mother is an extreme couponer, and the family's home is FILLED with pallets of discount items and endless stock. Overall, the show is entertaining, sometimes a little edgy, but ultimately radiates a vibe of confidence and self-appreciation.
