runs house just what America needed
13 June 2006 | by dlshnbroSee all my reviews

i believe runs house is a great example of how a family should be.they are a very loving and tight knit family i would have never guess that the mother shown on the show was not the biological mother of the three oldest kids because they all show love and and respect for one another.both mothers and rev run has and obviously continues to do a great job on raising these kids,they are a real family no spoiled brats,no drug heads and no disrespecting. i love that mom and dad teaches their kids that they have to earn the extra thing that they get,i also like how they do things together as a family and mom and dad doesn't just hand them a credit card and send them on there merry way I'm so glad this show is going for another round.and of course its good to see that this is a black American family.
