"What you see is kids really wanting to be independent and choosing how they hang out for Halloween … and being in charge of what their costumes look like."

"Middle school is an awkward time," says LaToya Boston, LMFT, CAMF, a licensed marriage and family therapist whose Inglewood, California practice, Real Moms Live, specializes in children, adolescents, and families.
One Family Therapist Says:
“My 7-year-old watches mostly shows offered on the Disney Channel and loves The Descendants, Liv & Maddie, Jessie, Girl Meets World, which I have no problem with. I noticed that she enjoyed watching YouTube shows, but she is only allowed to watch the “how to” shows, which teaches furniture-making, doll clothes, etc. I am not okay with her watching a lot of the YouTube family shows because their values are not always in line with the ones that we carry in our home.”
