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.

Perfect for all, say above 4. VERY indicative of real familes

Love it. Highlight of the week. wonderful singing, comedic talent, innocent, speaks to all families, good, clean, fun. Just what the Dr. ordered. Not to mention the cohesion of all 4 Cassidy Brothers and a wonderful example that that gives, of strong, bonded, familial unit!

Underage drinking is not OK!

I watched the first few episodes with my daughters, ages 9 and 13. We stopped watching after the episode dealing with underage drinking. To say that they treated this extremely sensitive topic in a flip manner doesn't go far enough. The teenaged cousin of the main character lied to his parents so he could go to a party and get drunk. His ride also got drunk and there are so many drunken parties at the address that the "taxi won't go there anymore". He called the title character, who doesn't have a license, to pick him up. She brought her younger cousin in the car also. When they got caught, the main problem was that the title character had taken a brand-new car. Really. That is what they cared about. The underage drinking was treated like no problem, because he didn't drive. The fact that she drove, with a child in the car, even though she didn't have a license wasn't a problem. We will never watch this show again. I hope that the impression left by the show is not what my children remember.
