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

The Parent 'Hood (which originally ran from 1994 to 1999 and still airs in syndication) is quite family-friendly, but some episodes cover serious topics, including teen pregnancy, gangs, and dropping out of school. Michael and Zaria also deal with the difficulties of being teenagers in a world filled with peer pressure. Nonetheless, the show promotes a very positive image of family and the African-American community. It also sends the message that parenting, while not easy, can be fun.

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.
