The Parent 'Hood (1995)

Show Summary

If there's a rule book for raising kids in the '90s, Robert Peterson never read it. He decided to write his own upside-down book on parenting. A big kid at heart, Robert swims freestyle when it comes to bringing up his own four children. For today's baby boomer parents, raising a family can not only be tricky, but can be extremely hazardous, especially leading kids through the treacherous maze from childhood, into their teens and then finally adulthood. Life in the Peterson household is no exception. But thank to the unpredictable antics of family patriarch and all-around bon vivant Robert, the process is rarely dull. Robert's love for his kids - combined with his vivid imagination (prompting frequent fantasy sequences) and impulsive energy - propels him to do extraordinary things on their behalf as he continually dreams up untraditional solutions to traditional family problems. Robert's a communications professor at NYU; his wife Jerri is a law student. They're deeply in love, highly opinionated and equally adept in the fine art of persuasion. With their hectic schedules they do their best to share responsibilities - but have very different ideas about how to get things done. When he can't convince his son of the importance of getting a job, Robert takes a pizza-parlor job himself - with disastrous results - just to prove that even he's not beneath doing menial work. The Peterson's four kids span the ages from teens to toddlers. The oldest two, 16-year-old Michael and 15-year-old Zaria, are reaching that age where they're eager to spread their wings, take their hormones for a test drive and avoid being seen with their not-quite-cool parents. Nicholas is a bright-eyed eight-year-old who's quickly discovering the joys of mischief. Four-year-old Cece is the darling of the family. Offering his own offbeat point-of-view is Robert's childhood buddy, Wendell. Parenting has never been an easy task, and in the fast-paced, high-tech, user-friendly, information-overload world of the '90s, it seems more difficult than ever. But Robert and Jerri want the best for their kids - and they're going to use all the love, ingenuity and creativity at their disposal to give it to them.moreless

    The Parent 'Hood is a teenager that helps her detective father solve cases, while attending highschool. For the past two years this show has had 2 big mysteries per season - each being solved by the end of the season. This is not like most shows that will string you along for years. On top of this we normally also get a "Mystery of the Week" (MOTW), that gets sloved in that same episode. Each of these MOTW are compelling in their own right.moreless

    I loved this show. I don\\\\\\\'t think I missed one episode. It was so realistic with the different experiences both the children and parents faced. The show however did jump shark when they added the troubled teen TK to the show. That along with Robert\\\\\\\'s fantasies becoming sillier and sillier really brought the show down from what it was. I would still support and buy any dvd\\\\\\\'s though.
  • I Loved the show i used to watch it all the time!! I wish it come back on again!!!

    The Parent 'Hood was a show to show people how black people live, well the well to do black people, and it showed morals and values. Ilove it and it really needs to come back on. It was a funny show but serious at the same time! I loved it!

    I absolutely loove this show and just wish they would bring



    it back. This show taught alot of family values and life



    lessons. This show was really informative and was not



    vulgar in anyway. I really liked this show and it was my



    all time favorite during that period of time.
