Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this show concerns a large extended family -- including grandparents and some young children -- but the focus tends to be on the problems of adult characters in their 30s. Kids are central to the plot, but that doesn't mean it's appropriate for them to watch; it's a better choice for teens and their parents to watch together so that parents can make sure positive messages hit home. Things to look out for include some implied sex and sexual situations; mild swearing (think "ass," "hell," and "motherfrickin'"); and teen characters who experiment with drugs, sex, and other forms of rebellion.
Some adult characters have sex with people outside of a committed relationship, and a few married characters admit to extramarital affairs. Teen characters consider becoming sexually active. No nudity, but some scenes imply sex has just taken place with bare shoulders peeking out of bedclothes, etc. Some lingerie shots.
Some run-of-the-mill arguing, pushing -- and even bleeding -- when kids get into arguments or get injured, etc.
Some mild swearing like "ass," "hell," "butt," and "motherfreakin'," etc.
The central message is that a strong extended family is important -- even if individual members don't always measure up to expectations. Some teens make bad choices but negative behaviors always have consequences. Storylines consistently show family members socializing and communicating with each other.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Two teen characters are arrested for smoking marijuana, and a teen smokes cigarettes; another is 19 and in Alcoholics Anonymous; he's working toward permanent sobriety. When teens drink underage, there are consequences. Adult characters also drink alcohol socially (and sometimes to excess) and, in at least one scene get high by accident.
