Show Summary
If there's a rule book for raising kids in the '90s, Robert Peterson never read it. He decided to write his own upside-down book on parenting. A big kid at heart, Robert swims freestyle when it comes to bringing up his own four children.

For today's baby boomer parents, raising a family can not onl y be tricky, but can be extremely hazardous, especially leading kids through the treacherous maze from childhood, into their teens and then finally adulthood. Life in the Peterson household is no exception. But thank to the unpredictable antics of family patriarch and all-around bon vivant Robert, the process is rarely dull. Robert's love for his kids - combined with his vivid imagination (prompting frequent fantasy sequences) and impulsive energy - propels him to do extraordinary things on their behalf as he continually dreams up untraditional solutions to traditional family problems.

Robert's a communications professor at NYU; his wife Jerri is a law student. They're deeply in love, highly opinionated and equally adept in the fine art of persuasion. With their hectic schedules they do their best to share responsibilities - but have very different ideas about how to get things done. When he can't convince his son of the importance of getting a job, Robert takes a pizza-parlor job himself - with disastrous results - just to prove that even he's not beneath doing menial work.

The Peterson's four kids span the ages from teens to toddlers. The oldest two, 16-year-old Michael and 15-year-old Zaria, are reaching that age where they're eager to spread their wings, take their hormones for a test drive and avoid being seen with their not-quite-cool parents. Nicholas is a bright-eyed eight-year-old who's quickly discovering the joys of mischief. Four-year-old Cece is the darling of the family. Offering his own offbeat point-of-view is Robert's childhood buddy, Wendell.

Parenting has never been an easy task, and in the fast-paced, high-tech, user-friendly, information-overload world of the '90s, it seems more difficult than ever. But Robert and Jerri want the best for their kids - and they're going to use all the love, ingenuity and creativity at their disposal to give it to them.
