Taking it up a notch

I love the show, however, would like for them to take the time to do Winnie's and the sister next to her hair. I like the show because it appears real with real issues, responses and family unity topped with love. I feel strongly about the her hair because the stylist are taking the time to make sure the mom's hair is on point but hers is not.

This title has:

Too much violence
Great role models

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Like the sitcom that he stars in, Crews takes a humorous approach when talking about his relationship with his wife and children. There are some serious moments, too, especially when the family faces potential crises thanks to wildfires and their kids' sometimes rebellious ways.

It's all pretty mild, and like many reality shows of this kind, some of the scenes seem a little staged. The Cosby-like family also comes off a little too perfect at times. But this doesn't take away from the strong positive messages it offers about marriage, parenthood, and family.

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.
