Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Single Parents is a show about a group of single parents who become fast friends and support each other through life's obstacles. It features some strong sexual innuendo, including conversations about divorce and having sex, as well as some crude references to genitals. There are also discussions about infidelity, divorce, and uninvolved and dead spouses. Words like "bastard" are used, sometimes by children, and on occasion adults are seen drinking. Logos for Dell and iPhone, and references to Disney characters like Moana and dating sites like Tinder are used. Teenagers should be able to handle it, but it's really a series aimed at a more adult audience.
Is It Any Good?
This lively series offers some sharp wit as its group of parents offer their very candid thoughts about being single, raising their kids, and somehow remaining sane. From dating and having sex to accepting the fact that their former spouse or partner isn't coming back, it uses quick banter filled with one-liners to drive the points home.
Single Parents features a fun ensemble cast, and you can't help but laugh at some of the jokes. But the cheesy, over-the-top moments make it feel more silly than thoughtful at times. Nonetheless, if you're a parent, especially a single one, it's likely that you'll find some laughs here.
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.
