This funny and original sitcom that works with flashbacks features the sympathetic Finnerty family, of Irish origin and installed in Staten Island in New York City. The young parents who compose it, Sean and Claudia, experience the greatest difficulty in raising their three children, especially since Eddy, the totally irresponsible young brother of Sean, is particularly invasive, and Walt, the father of Sean, critic constantly the education of children.

Parents at all costs (Grounded for Life) was a comic American television series which was broadcast between 2001 and 2005. The series followed the adventures of the Finnerty family, a couple of parents with three children who live in Staten Island, in New York . The father, Sean Finnerty, was a former punk rocker who had abandoned his dreams of glory to raise his family. His wife, Claudia, was a tattooed and bohemian housewife. The family of the family were Lily, their eldest daughter, Jimmy, their teenage son, and Henry, their younger son.

The series was mainly focused on the daily problems with which the Finnerty family faced, such as parent-child conflicts, finance management, and romantic relationships. The style of the series was comical and sometimes absurd, with episodes that featured wacky secondary characters such as family, family friends, family friends, and Sean's work colleagues.

Parents at all costs has been acclaimed by criticism for his intelligent humor and realistic representation of the problems with which parents can be confronted. The series has won numerous prizes, including an Emmy for the best artistic direction for a comic series. She has also been nominated for many other prices, including a Golden Globe for the best actress in a musical or comic television series for actress Megyn Price, who played Claudia.

Despite his critical success, parents at all costs has never been a huge commercial success and was canceled after five seasons. However, the series has acquired a base of faithful fans over the years, and remains considered one of the best comic series of all time by fans and criticism.
