Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this series began with the sisters as young teens and ended six years later with them in college -- which allowed episode topics to gain some maturity over the years. The list ranges from divorce, dating (both parents and kids), and break-ups to skipping school, learning to drive, and first jobs.
Is It Any Good?
Sister, Sister tries to maintain a balance of parent involvement, even-keeled daughters, and typical teenage problems -- a successful formula that has led to a long life in syndication snice the series ended in 1999. Sister, Sister has maintained a loyal fan base and has managed to stand the test of time. Teens can relate as the twins experience typical problems in high school with friends, boys, and each another. Parents will like the fact that each episode contains a lesson learned, plus a family discussion.
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.
