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.

definitely not for kids under 16

there's no way kids under 16 should be allowed to watch this, i dont even think this is suitable for kids that are 16, i mean there's so much talk about sex, and very innapropriate messages. like the charachter that played in the tv show was 14 and was kissing other cast members that were at least 20. not to talk about the amount of drugs that is talked and used in the show. if you dont want sexually active teen at 14 with pot and weird friends at your household, you better restrict access to this show for your children.
