Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this mild reality series contains positive messages about family. Expect some sexual innuendo that will go over young kids' heads, as well as a few references to "boobs" and teen pregnancy. Threats of disciplinary action make non-serious references to hitting.
Is It Any Good?
The series, which mixes documentary and comedy formats, offers a humorous and voyeuristic look at the dynamics between the members of a newly blended family. Each episode is produced to follow a specific story line, but it contains plenty of seemingly spontaneous moments that create a sense of reality.
Nash's humor is definitely entertaining, and her children's dry wit will also make you chuckle. It's lighthearted and fun, but the overall show sends a very strong message about positive relationships and the importance of family.
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.
