Summary of Season 2 (2001) - 3 discs

Getting married and having a baby at age 18 was only the first in a long line of challenges for harried 30-somethings Sean (Donal Logue) and Claudia (Megyn Price), who are now the seasoned parents of two more children (Griffin Frazen and Jake Burbage). In the second season of "Grounded for Life," Claudia secretly starts smoking and buys her daughter's silence with the promise of a cell phone, and Sean makes peace with his cousin's ashes.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that while the kids' mother and father are loving and attentive, they often garner laughs with their sarcasm, immaturity, and tales of occasional carelessness. This might turn off adults who want their kids to be exposed to Married... With Children, this show isn't nearly as envelope-pushing as its predecessor, but it still might raise some eyebrows.

Sexual Content

The parents and even their eldest child make sexual jokes. The oldest teenage daughter has called her parents "horndogs" and has a sexual relationship with her boyfriend. Strippers and pornography have cropped up from time to time.


Not applicable


Mild: Words like "crap hole" are used.

Social Behavior

The parents aren't much more mature than their teenage kids, offering questionable role models. But the underlying messages is that it's important to maintain family ties because you're always going to need your family to look after you.
