Understanding the world we live in

I am a parent of 21 yo, 16yo and 8yo. Thoughtful drama set against the best known conflict for generations past, and sadly, generations to come. I believe that with parental guidance 10+ can watch this show, and I strongly recommend checking in with older teenagers to find out if they have - and discussing it. If watched with attention and focus, it will not form bias, but it may consolidate any bias they already hold. The story is evenly told, from both sides, and I think it is important for parents to keep in mind, for their own bias, that the creators of the show come from both sides of the conflict.
