As parent of a daughter about to enter middle school and also being a ’90s child, Sydney to the Max is an awesome show to watch together with my daughter. This new show looks really awesome and airs on The Disney Channel on January 25 8:30pm ET/PT.Sydney to the Max

A heartwarming and sentimental comedy, “Sydney to the Max” centers around the experiences of a sociable, goodhearted middle schooler named Sydney Reynolds and her protective, doting – and sometimes clueless! – single dad Max as they navigate the challenges of growing up. Set during two timeframes, decades apart, flashback scenes to young Max and his best friend Leo in the 1990s parallel many of the funny predicaments Sydney and her BFF Olive get themselves into. VHS camcorders, bleached skater hair and other ’90s-defining “relics” aside, Sydney and Max come to realize, aided by Sydney’s kicky grandmother Judy, who’s well-versed in Max’s childhood antics, that they have more in common than either realizes.

Having to navigate all the changes in a girl as she reaches middle school is daunting. While we’ve talked about things, being about to see stories to relate to that isn’t your own parents are much better. Coming of age shows are such a great resource and this one will allow me to share some of my childhood favorites with the 1990’s flashback scenes.
