Parenting Styles in TV Sitcoms
Our project focuses on parenting behaviors and styles based off TV sitcoms that we have selected - The Brady Bunch, Full House and Modern Family. We found it very interesting that certain families and shows can be perceived in different ways based off of things like era, social class, animation versus live TV, etc. KCK Research thanks you in advance for participating in our survey.
