Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the reality series Six Little McGhees is family friendly, but does discuss some mature issues like miscarriages and the use of fertility drugs. It also contains images of a Caesarean section being performed and the children receiving vaccinations, which may disturb sensitive viewers. There's some mild flirtation and a few arguments between adults, but the overall show contains positive messages about family and community.

What's the story?

SIX LITTLE MCGHEES is a reality series featuring Mia and Rozonno "Ro" McGhee and their lively gang of toddler sextuplets. The energetic multiples, who includes Rozonno Jr., Josiah, Madison, Olivia, Isaac, and Elijah, keep their parents busy, but with the help of volunteers like Amy and Antonese (a.k.a. "Boogie"), and family members like the talkative Tania, and Ro's playful mom Charmayne, the couple works hard to keep the household going smoothly while running their carpet cleaning business. From going food shopping to visiting the doctor, every day is an adventure. But despite some overwhelming moments, there's lots of laughs and love.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

As Columbus, Ohio's first set of sextuplets, the McGhees received a share of the media spotlight when the children were born, including an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Now that the children are toddlers, audiences are being invited in to the McGhee home to see what day-to-day life is like when trying to raise a large set of multiples.  

Some viewers may disagree with some of the things the McGhee parents do to maintain order (and their sanity), like feeding their children from a single bowl and spoon despite warnings from their pediatrician. But there's no shortage of themes revolving around family, prayer, and giving back in this series, and folks interested in this sort of thing will appreciate the positive messages.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about families on reality TV. Why are folks curious about the way families with large sets of multiples live? Why do you think the McGhees agreed to be featured in a reality show? Is it for the money? To generate publicity for their business? The fame?

  • Do you think the activities they engage in with their children on the show are the same when the cameras are off?

  • Why do you think this show is on the OWN network? Could you imagine it on a non-cable network?

Real life

I love this show! To see how the parents work things out, and et along like a regular couple is great. Especially since they are a black family and they are not Cosby like. This is real life. From the sick child throwing up and ruining valentines day to having to stick to a budget while grocery shopping.Putting some of the food back because you've gone over budget,can be embarrassing, but...oh well! , can be embarrassing
