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.

5? Eh.. Here's a story..

When Caroline Doobel turned five years old, she did not like the app Hickory Dickory Dock. When Mom pulled it up, the girl said, "THAT APP IS FOR BABIES! B-A-B-I-E-S!" Caroline Doobel is five and has the maturity of a 12 year old. "I already know how to tell time, spell, and read! I hate being 5! I'm 12!" Caroline Doobel even is on Facebook and Mom doesn't say no to it. Caroline Doobel's favorite app is not an Age 5+ app.. it's Game of War: Fire Age. Can't you believe that a five year old girl has the maturity of a twelve year old, and in Grade 6.... Hmm....
