The Parent 'Hood
The series is about an upper middle-class black family in Harlem, New York City named the Petersons. Robert Peterson is a college professor at New York University, and his wife Jerri is a law student. They try to balance their lives, their work, and their four children at the same time. They have four kids.
The oldest two, 16-year old Michael and 15-year-old Zaria, are reaching that age where they're eager to spread their wings and are ready to experiment and avoid being seen with their not quite cool parents. Nicholas is a bright eyed 8-year-old who is quickly discovering the joys of mischief. 4-year-old Cece is the darling of the family. Offering his own offbeat point of view is Robert's childhood buddy, Wendell.
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 nontraditional solutions to traditional family problems. Many critics from news organizations such as the Associated Press and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution often referred to the show as The Cosby Show of the 1990s.
