I’m counting down the days until the Sept. 14 premiere of NBC’s Parenthood. I find an hour-long drama about parenting dilemmas more than a bit entertaining. There is the single mother, the working mother and the-not-so-committed father. There is the family dealing with a child’s illness and the family facing a budget crisis. There is even an interracial couple, though I fear the writers will end the relationship.
