Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Tiny Terrors is very similar to other reality shows focused on parenting issues, though without the sensational production elements -- like constant replays of misbehavior or eye-rolling experts -- seen in Supernanny and Nanny 911. But perhaps because of this, the show is a little underwhelming. Certainly parents with similar problems will empathize with the featured families' emotional predicaments, but the analysis of family issues stays pretty near the surface. The main difference between this show and others like it, aside from the general tone, is that these families move into a special house for the duration of the show. This format, while unique, seems less likely to prove helpful, since kids and parents are sure to act differently in a strange environment, with other kids and adults around to distract and possibly inhibit their behavior.

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.
