This podcast works because of its combination of humor, unique concept, and empathy geared toward the often overlooked tween audience.The Holidays uses an unusual premise to introduce a very relatable concept: the growing pains of becoming a preteen. Like many kids her age, the main character Clementine gets embarrassed by her parents and fights with her little brother. While she has good friends (including her BFF Sunny), she also deals with the catty behavior of some of her peers. Whether you're a tween, teen or full-fledged adult, there's often cringe-worthy moments in Clementine's experiences we can relate to all-too-well. Clem rides the waves of insecurities, while learning that it's okay to be her unique self. This show is a perfect blend of tween angst mixed with the comfort and joy of family traditions.

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.
