Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this grown-up drama deals with the complex relationships between a group of adult children and their parents. As such, some of the issues the characters deal with -- including marriage counseling, infidelity, serious illness, and prescription drug addiction -- might be too mature (and possibly of little interest) for tweens and younger teens. There are, however, some younger characters who are coming of age on the show as the series progresses, so plotlines could change.

Sexual Content

The show deals with and discusses both heterosexual and homosexual sexual relationships. Some kissing, but sex scenes are suggested and nudity is only implied.


One character grapples with cancer and loses her husband due to complications from a car crash.


"Screw you," "ass," "damn," etc.

Social Behavior

While the show's overall message is that it's important to respect and be there for family members in good times and bad, episodes deal with mature, complex topics, and lessons aren't always learned in just one episode. That said, both honesty and communication are important.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Mostly social drinking, with at least one incident of underage drinking in which a teen doesn't realize she's drinking alcohol and suffers some consequences as a result. An adult character struggles with an addiction to alcohol and prescription medication after returning from combat in the Middle East.
