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.

The kids like the show but as an adult you see how bad it is. The parents don’t watch their kids in the show and are never blamed when then let their kids do something dangerous. The kids are never learning their lesson and the show teaches bad manners.

I watch this still!

Just perfection.
