DESPITE THE FIGHTS ,THE RANDER FAMILY IS UNSUCCESFUL IS SELLING THEIR HOUSE AFTER MANY BATTLES ,THE ,THE SORORITY GROUP AND THE RANDER FAMILY AGREE ON A SYMBIOTIC RELATIONSHIP IN WHICH THEY RANDERS MOVE OUT OF THEIR HOUSE ,AND THE SORORITY GROUP RENT THE HOUSE FOR A MONTHLY RENTAL PAYABLE TO THE RANDERS. THE MATERIAL CONTAINS COMPLEX AND MATURE THEMES WHICH EXPLORE ISSUES OF SUCH AS DYSFUNCTIONAL LIFESTYLES ,MISCHEVIOUS COLLEGE LIFE,RIGHTS OF PASSAGE ,PARENTING ,FINDING IDENTITY ,FORGIVENESS ,FRIENDSHIP ,AND RELATIONSHIPS . THE MATERIAL IS PRESENTED WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF A COMEDICAL GENRE AND HAS A SUBTLE POSITIVE MESSAGE OF NEVER GIVING UP DESPITE THE CHALLENGES FACED IN LIVE. HOWEVER THE MATERIAL ALSO PORTRAYS THE KEY MEMBERS OF THE SORORITY AS RECKLESS AND PARTY GOERS WHO APPEAR NOT TO HAVE ANY INTEREST IN THEIR COLLEGE WORK. THE TYPE OF BEHAVIOUR BEING PORTRAYED ,NAMELY BEING REBELIOUS AND NEVER GIVING UP WITHOUT A FIGHT AND GLAMOURISING SUBSTANCE ABUSE,COULD BE EMULATED BY YOUNG IMPRESSIONABLE MINDS. ALTHOUGH THERE IS NO SENSE OF THREAT OR MENACE , THE CONTENT AND CONTEXT AND THEMES MAY MISLEAD , UPSET , DISTRESS OR CONFUSE CHILDREN BELOW THE AGE OF 16 WHO ARE NOT MORALLY AND COGNITIVELY MATURED TO WITHSTAND SUCH DYBAMICS.
