Protagonist is not a good role model

Honestly its not a bad show. It does show the attitudes of the teens pretty well. However the protagonist Wendy is fake. She is made out to be a kind and caring girl who is very righteous, and everyone loves her. But she is a very passive aggressive girl who thinks she knows best. There are 2 antagonists, Vanessa and Christian. However, I actually liked those characters better than Wendy, even though they are very very rude and down-right can be very mean, however, they are actually very truthful in their own uppity attitude. There is one specific episode that really gets my goat. She steals a horse, and at the end of the episode she is just forgiven and given a happy ending. Another issue I have with the character is the downright rudeness she presents to adults. Other than that its a good show despite the fake heroin. Definitely talk to your kids about some of the things she does and how she could have done something different. She is not a bad girl, just a normal teenager. But what she gets away with is wrong.
