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.

Great channel...until tonight

We normally turn to BabyFirst TV when our younger children (2-yo and 5-yo) want to watch TV. They love the shows, dance to all the songs,...or relax to the bedtime episodes. They have been great. Until now. This evening at 7pm when their show So Yummy aired episode "Top Down Challenge-Michelle Khare Tries to Recreate Penguin"...my husband and I were shocked at the language used by the women in the video. Had this been another channel, or a MUCH later time, the language wouldn't have been such a big deal. But to hear grown women telling each other to "shut up", calling the other a "b****", and finally one bleeped "f***"...let's be real. It was as 13-min episode...was the language necessary? But more importantly, do our children really need to be exposed to that on a BABY CHANNEL?? The people on shows BabyFirst TV airs represents their channel. Apparently we cannot guarantee that if we leave the room for a minute, their channel will continue to air appropriate content for our children. Which is disappointing because besides this channel, we've only been able to trust Disney Junior to be fully child appropriate. After tonight, we will no longer be watching BabyFirstTV. We cannot support a station which appears to cater to babies and condones such disrespectful and degrading behavior...especially while most children are still awake and possibly watching their shows.
