Finally, another viewer posted: “This is one strange series, the kids ask to go to the park which seems like a drive away! Why would you let your kids go out on their own to a park that seems pretty far away seems like irresponsible parenting.” Some viewers were also confused about the gorgeous homes, with one quipping: “Who has a house like that and not have a dishwasher?”
