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.

This is the 3rd movie in a series. I was originally impressed with the series, showing teens that the best relationships have boundaries and limit the physical. Unfortunately this third one seems to focus on the fact that LJ and Peter haven't had sex yet and pretty much ends with them in bed. I wish they would have held fast to the boundaries or at least to the book. The language was so minimal it could have been taken out to make it more of a tween/teen film. Another downer: The dad's fiance moves in with the family prior to the marriage. It did provide some good conversation with my daughters. But if yours haven't seen it and aren't asking for it, don't show them. If they do want to watch it, watch it together and talk about the hard subjects.
