Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Surviving Motherhood is mildly entertaining, the kind of thing a person might watch while folding laundry or breastfeeding. The experts and moms generally offer good, if obvious advice, and the real appeal, as always, is in feeling that you yourself can certainly do better than that. But this program isn't targeted to kids, and it's not likely to interest them, since the family issues tend to be of the milder variety.

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.
