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.

Not for kids under 8

Had to deal with a kid completely inconsolable because the daycare that she goes to decided to watch this movie today. She came home asking for a Yes Day, and at least I knew enough to say no that isn't a real thing. So she went to her room and started crying because she wanted a Yes Day so bad. She still struggles to understand that movies aren't real even though we've told her over and over again. Thank you for the other reviews because I was able to talk about it with her and point out that the purpose of the movie was to be nicer to parents and that the kids in that movie aren't very nice to their parents.
