Parental Guidance (#15.4)
28 June 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I was surprised the mother in this episode was accused of busing the kid. When thee girl said "she pushed me", I right away was sure she talked about her sister. This was the obvious thing. The idea is pretty good though, an underage psychopath. And Madison Danielle Davenport does some really good acting.

I don't get why Tony was so against the tongue stud. I actually have trouble understanding it all the time, even as an adult I don't get what harm they see in it. This is the time for young kids to have piercings before office tells them how to look.

I am a bit sad Morris is such a prude when it comes to the great escort girl. She actually should get somebody better than him.
