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.

Nature Cat needs to be removed!

My kids have enjoyed PBS Kids but the show "Nature Cat" is not allowed in our house. Nature Cat is a crybaby, brat, mean to his friends, and is a horrible influence on children. Either change the show and Nature Cat be nice, or just remove it completely. Also, Caillou was removed. THAT'S A RELIEF.

Somewhat decent

Some shows such as pinkalicious are a bit hard for me to watch. I have 2 boys who watch pbs kids alot and one pinkalicious makes up so many words. My boys are 1 and 2 and in the word learning stage,so it doesnt help much when they gravitate towards words that don't even exist. Two, I have an issue with the lizzo commercial " feelin good as hell" by lizzo , who gets played occasionally. With children who are learning how to speak this isn't very comforting at all to a mother and father of two and one on the way.
