Synopsis

This episode features a couple who moved from Toronto to a small town for work where they are raising their two kids aged eight and six. The wife worries about the lack of culture, her husband is more laid back, and a trip to a museum reveals their different approaches. Their biggest difference in opinion: what to do once their kids become teenagers. Should they move back to the city, or to a bigger town nearby? A single mother chooses to have a child on her own. Her 5- year-old son is beginning to act out, and she is questioning her parenting style. Will her network of friends and family be enough to provide her with the support she needs? And it takes a village for this young couple and their four kids under the age of six. They have a lot of help from their large family. They are raising their kids to be open and liberal — a stark contrast to how they were raised in an Evangelical Christian community. When their eldest kids started expressing opinions that were downright judgmental, they left the church. Now they are wrestling with how much of the old value system they should keep in play.
