This Parenting Gig Is Rough
1 March 2014 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

Cory is handed a special class assignment, to try to portray a perfect family. Feeny sets up Shawn and Minkus as brothers, with Cory and Topanga being the parents. Naturally, this doesn't go down to well with any of them. Eric is cajoled into getting a job as a model in the mall, qutting his job in the process. After much debate, Alan decides to let Eric do what he wants, hoping he learns from mistakes. This was an excellent episode, very interesting as well. Nobody is an ideal family, nobody. If you tell me you have the "perfect family" , I'd say you're full of it. Parenting is not as easy as it looks. The Matthews parents are as close to ideal as you're gonna get. They're far from perfect, but they care very much about their kids and their fates. You have to learn from the mistakes you make, that's your punishment, the suffering. That will accomplish more than grounding, lecturing, or being accosted. Parenting takes work on both sides. Eric being dressed up as a human lobster is classic. Cory's storyline is very good as well, but I'd say Eric's was the best. Wait until you see Minkus's fake tattoo! BMW fans will love this one

Note. Be on the lookout for California Dreams star, Kelly Packard! She has a cameo in this episode
