** Also, even today, that kind of parenting is not as abusive by many people or it's considered no one else's business. There are entire online communities dedicated to that kind of parenting, books written that encourage it, and even laws that permit it. Simply put, the general rule is if it doesn't leave a bruise, it's not abuse.

*** In one episode, Drew tells Tonya there's no Santa Claus and Rochelle proceeds to beat him. Chris reveals to the audience that when his mother would actually hit them, she would say she wanted to talk to them, and the rest of her threats carried no actual weight.

** It's exaggerated for laughs. The probable reality is he would've got some ass whoopings from time to time and the rolling pin was a threat that wasn't actually followed through with.

**This might be a cultural difference. Although my parents were milder, they were just as violent as Rochelle and this kind of treatment of children was extremely common in my culture. I've had friends who experienced pretty much the same in their culture even though we live in the USA.

** Chris has actually shown (lampshaded and discussed) that if he does he either gets his ass kicked or he gets framed for attacking Caruso. Why do you think he's so resigned to it?

** It was a parody of ''Series/TheSopranos'' final scene which had similar creepy people. He had no real significance, although I've heard people say they think he's supposed to be the person who eventually become ChrisRock[='s=] agent.

* How is Rochelle's brand of parenting not considered child abuse? One of the earlier episodes when she is beating Drew and his pained screams can clearly be heard is especially jarring. She will beat Chris and her other children for wrongdoings even though they've clearly learned their lessons and are clearly repentant at the end of the episode ("If you ask me, 'next time' is 'this time'"), threatens Chris with a ROLLING PIN...and how was she NOT arrested for literally shoving a shoe up Chris' ass? She had brought him to the hospital for it and nobody seemed to give a damn. Surely she would be arrested for that, amongst other things? This is not funny, even in a "life sucks" comedy. I don't see how we're supposed to laugh at a mother who is clearly physically abusive towards her children. This takes place in the 80s, not the 50s (and even THEY had standards!).

* How come Chris never fights back against Caruso each time Caruso punches him in the face. The worst thing is that he [[KarmaHoudini gets away with it!]].
