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.

Why Is The Least Skilled Tennis Player Black And The Others White?

While my daughter likes the website, she was quite upset yesterday when she played a tennis game and the "Beginner" opponent was black and all the other more advanced opponents were white. Have you never heard of the Williams sisters?!? As a young black tennis player this was quite offensive to her and made her feel black tennis players are not as good as white ones, hence the "Beginner" status of the one most matching her. Thus, she does not want to play that particular game anymore. I appreciate the diversity in adding a black tennis player but did it have to be the least-skilled of them all?

Too difficult

My teens were playing a math game that they said was impossible and it was mancala which i know so i gave it a try. It's literally against a super computer. This is super defeating for my kids to be trying to learn and put up against something virtually impossible. The computer should have some lee way to allow people who are learning to win sometimes
