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.

Worst ever!

A lot of the programs don’t have instructions and it’s hard to maneuver the click and drag segments. This program is designed for special education students and he can’t even work it. Words can not express how much I HATE this program!! It is so awful.
