Switched at birth 1x28 online dating
Episodes have lots of plot points that can be used to have further discussions with your kids. I've been watching this show since I was 11 with my mom and best friend. This show inspired me and my friend to learn sign language. This show in the last season SPOILER ALERT does talk about rape. It's also a great conversation starter for kids and parents to talk about a lot of stuff.Bay one of the main characters gets drunk really drunk and has sex with a guy (her ex) that she doesn't remember saying yes to. I recommend this show to anyone who is ready to watch an amazing life changing show.Children are very impressionable and are looking for role models in their favorite shows to emulate.I would be heartbroken if my children patterned their lives after ANY of the main characters in "Switched at Birth."I enjoyed watching it myself during the first season. Too much teen sex and it seems to condone teen sex as normal and unavoidable behavior. It shows under age drinking and a lot of lying and rebellious behavior.I'm midway through the second season (on Netflix), and, so far, there have been two storylines that positively depict sex between men in their 20s and girls under 18, with no real consequences.The only negative adult reaction to the first (between a man in his late 20s and a 16 year-old girl) was the difficulty the girl would face dating her boss.They don't, but it's because he stops her by saying he "doesn't have anything". I would not let anyone under 12 watch this unless a mature 11 year old.
One place where I think the review is a bit off is in regards to the sexual content - it shows one of the moms in bed with a man she is recently dating and one scene involves the 15 year-old main character trying to get her new crush to sleep with her. This show poses a positive message and has a good role model.We first started watching this show because my daughter is hard of hearing and we liked the ASL element.The writing and acting is a little cheesy and melodramatic, but I really love the way they handle teen issues like sex, drugs, and bullying.I'm disappointed with the review given by Common Sense Media on this one. The sexual content is clearly more than just some flirting and kissing, as is shown on the Netflix description.
The adults are jumping in and out of bed (and some of this is clearly shown on screen), and the teens are in situations that imply they may or may not be sexually active.She has sex before marriage when she only had one day to go? She is made fun of by main characters who call her "churchy" as if it' makes her a freak. I love many aspects of this show for my 12 year-old daughter.
