Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Our inate COMPASSION....One is never too young to feel Love and to give Love !

The Champions need to be seen by EVERYONE at ANY AGE ( for Youngsters with the parental guidance). What more, I wish for The Champions to be shown in every classroom across the US if not across the Globe. It tells the story of the cruel reality of how us the human can afflic pain to other(s) and to self. It tells the story of how the compassion in us human can cast over to recover the broken souls and give life a second chance for the sufferers. I am urging every parent to watch The Champoins documentary with their children to its entirety. Parents may want to have their children acquainted with the topic story before watching the film, and to empathize the importance for mutual respect for both Dog and Human and how to foster a safety and well-happy relationship... With love to All !
