So Awkward

We found So Awkward during Covid lockdown and my daughter loves it. It is the perfect program for a ten year old girl. It covers issues that are relevant to children of that age group and helps them to understand how to react in certain circumstances. As with all quality programming, So Awkward does this by using scenes that kids can empathize with; situations that they will have found themselves in. There is no moralising; many life lessons are shown in a humorous way that makes it enjoyable to watch.
