Adult­ing is hard

Be­ing mom and dad to a brood of dif­fi­cult kids makes our daily of­fice jobs look as easy as rid­ing a bi­cy­cle.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - SHOWMAX -

It’s tough rais­ing kids – but it can be fun too! Drama se­ries Par­ent­hood (2010-2015, sea­sons 1- 6 are avail­able on in­ter­net stream­ing ser­vice ShowMax) shows us that par­ent­ing isn’t child’s play with bit­ter­sweet mo­ments through­out the se­ries. You think that your boss is bad? Try be­ing both good cop and bad cop at once! Meet the Braver­man fam­ily: at the top of the fam­ily tree are grand­par­ents Zeek and Camille (Craig T Nel­son and Bon­nie Bedelia). On the branch be­low that are their kids, sin­gle-mom Sarah (Lau­ren Graham) and her two kids Am­ber and Drew (Mae Whit­man and Miles Heizer); Ju­lia (Erika Chris­tensen), a suc­cess­ful at­tor­ney try­ing to jug­gle work and moth­er­hood along­side her stay-at-home hubby Joel (Sam Jaeger); com­mit­ment-phobe Crosby (Dax Shep­ard), who’s thrown a curve­ball when his ex- girl­friend Jas­mine (Joy Bryant) shows up with her son Jab­bar (Tyree Brown); and Adam (Peter Krause), his wife Kristina (Mon­ica Pot­ter) and their teen daugh­ter Had­die and lit­tle Max (Sarah Ramos and Max Burkholder), who has Asperger’s Syn­drome. The Braver­mans are a big, big brood and that means plenty of en­ter­tain­ing and dra­matic mo­ments, such as:
