Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this reality series about aggressive party-planning moms sends confusing messages: Loving mothers abruptly become demanding, controlling, and self-centered while organizing events for their children. Some moms compete with their children for attention, while others seem to lose sight of why they're throwing the party in the first place. You can also expect some strong language; words like "bitch" and "crap" are audible, while the likes of "s--t" are bleeped.
Is It Any Good?
These mamas proudly admit that they're materialistic, difficult to please, and inflexible when it comes to their kid's big bash. Many seem to take pride in the fact that they act like spoiled children when vendors can't meet their long list of demands. And some have a hard time letting their kids have the spotlight on their special day, somehow managing to make themselves the center of attention.
Although the show is tamer than MTV's popular, similarly themed My Super Sweet 16, it still sends some very disturbing messages about the extremes that some parents will go to in order to make their kids -- and themselves -- happy. For many of these moms, planning these parties is more about satisfying their need to be in control and/or in the limelight than really doing something nice for their kids. Their antics might be fun for older viewers to watch, but it doesn't make them very good role models for the younger set.
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.
