In this series of family and love situations that take place in the now 21st century, Michael Kyle learns that being a father is a very big step of confidential knowledge and learning how to deal with good and bad times. Along with his wife, Janet Marie "Jay" Kyle, she is willing to help make sure that Michael understands and learns the basic real steps on how a family should be in life and how much their three children, Junior, Claire and Kady are to them.
During the show things changed, Junior was able to graduate from high school but was in love with Vanessa who later had their first child, eventually making Michael and Jay grandparents. They still learn to live with it as they're still young and quite happy with their son's experiences as a father. Claire actually finds her real love, Tony. Eventually, Michael doesn't actually trust him that much but learns that her daughter is growing up. And Kady would hang out with Franklin as he's funny and more mature with a lot of knowledge. And then people wonder how a child knows so much.
The series was popular comedy very much similar to The Cosby Show but eventually the series was cancelled as their 5th Season ended with a nasty yet funny cliffhanger.
