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.

its not that bad.

the parents on here are really reaching. this app is wonderful to make friends, laugh, have fun, and more. sure, there are revealing stuff and curse words, but its nothing your child hasn't already seen. sit down, and let your kids have fun.
