Parenthood is about the Braverman family and their life's ups and downs. There are four siblings- Adam, Sarah, Julia, and Crosby. Adam,the oldest sibling,is married to Kristina and has two kids, Haddie and Max. Sarah, is a single divorced mother with two kids, Amber and Drew. Julia, is married to Joel, and she has a daughter, Sydney. Crosby has a girlfriend,jasmine, and a son,Jabbar.

Adam's son, Max, has Asperger's Syndrome and Adam and Christina have a hard time dealing with it. Sarah is divorced and she has trouble raising her kids without their father, Seth, who didn't pay attention to them. Julia is a lawyer who doesn't get to spend much time with her daughter. Crosby just recently gets introduced to his son, Jabbar, after five years of not knowing him.

This is a great show for the whole family. The whole cast does a great job at acting. Parenthood does a great job of bringing up so many feelings. I recommend that everyone watches it.

Hi! I have been watching this show for the past three weeks or so and I'm happy to see that someone else enjoys it as much as I do! I am currently ini the 3rd season and getting into the grit of the drama that is unfolding for the Braverman family. I think it is wonderful that a television show is actively showing that children, such as Max, do actually face challenges such as Autism and they're able to have those hard conversations on the show explaining what it is and how to deal with it, which is what I think kids who deal with the same thing just need to hear sometimes and see that they too are able to be represented on television because they are normal just like everyone else.

Hi Kristina, I totally love this show so much. I came across this show when I finished Brothers and Sisters and wanted to watch something similar to the show and when this was offered as a suggestion I checked it out and found myself totally in obsess with the episodes, from watching the kids grow and moving to college, and the parents to finding themselves through job changes, love changes and to finding themsleves, the show does tackle the strong stories and changes in life, also the series finale is a major heartfelt and tear moment as there is a strong connection of hoe the series began and how it ended it was so a moment in history for me.
