I just watched an episode of the show "Parenthood" on NBC.
To be honest, I have been watching it since season one and every single episode brings tears to my eyes.
It's very rare to come across a good show, especially now days. But that's a total different subject :)
Parenthood is a show about the Braverman family. 4 Siblings that have kids of their own and how they handle life with family, kids, and their parents.
I would say my favorite family is Christina and Adam.
They have a 16 year old daughter Haddie, and a 8 year old? son Max. Hattie wants to date an older guy and Max has asperger syndrome. (often considered a high functioning form of autism)
Every time I watch the show, it really hits me what it's like to be a parent of an older child.
At 16, I was no angel. I wasn't a rebel, but definitely not an angel. Looking back, how I used to be, makes me feel so bad for my parents. Now watching this show, what the parents are going through make me think. I really need to gear up with patience, and wisdom for when they become teens.
I enjoy this show, but a lot of times, the script doesn't come in alignment with my beliefs.
I think it's very important to filter EVERYTHING we see. Take in the good, and cast away the bad.
For example, the character Christina inspires me. She is so supportive of her husband!
I could definitely learn from that.
I don't have a child with learning disabilities, but I have a brother who does. I can relate to the family somewhat.
Overall, I enjoy watching the show. The happy and sad moments families go through are very realistic. I think that Ron Howard and his team did an amazing job with the script.
I especially like the intro song :) You tube doesn't have it. ;O I cannot believe it. So you have to start watching an episode to hear it :) The words are sooo beautiful!
Anyway, I hope I didn't bore you with my love for this show. lol
Do you have a favorite show?
