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.

Profanity and Vulgarity

The mother calls her child the B word in the first episode, and another episode is entirely about sex and child drinking alcohol. I don’t appreciate this show being passed off as a family friendly show when it is most definitely not. I was disgusted at much of the low-brow humor and material. I would not suggest this show for families, or anyone really.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Vulgar, Offensive and Inappropriate

If you think it’s funny to scream and call your toddler child a b*^%% or forget your preschooler in the car (something that actually kills many children each year), or laugh about a child experiencing rectal prolapse, which can be a sign of sexual abuse, then you might like this show. Otherwise, I would strongly advise skipping this terrible program. This show glorifies child neglect, abuse and bad parenting. To top it off, the writing and acting is horrendous, and the characters are flat and one dimensional. HARD PASS.

Too much swearing
