Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that OutDaughtered is a reality show featuring a family raising six daughters, including a set of quintuplets. While generally mild, there is some iffy language and there are some tense moments when the babies are delivered, vaccinated, and occasionally treated for medical problems. There's a little sexual innuendo, but overall it's one of the more harmless reality shows out there.
Is It Any Good?
The reality doc offers a rather mundane look at the everyday challenges that come with raising multiples. What sets it apart from other multiple birth-themed shows such as Kate Plus 8 is the fact that these quintuples, who were conceived with the help of fertility treatments, are the first all-female set born in the U.S., as well as the first set of surviving quintuplets in the United States since 1969.
The quints are certainly novel, and there are a few lighthearted moments here and there. Grandma Mimi occasionally makes things interesting, especially when she makes the more challenging baby-rearing moments about her. But most of the series is spent creating voyeuristic entertainment out of the otherwise tedious routines required for keeping a household full of small children of the same age running as smoothly as it can.
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.
