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.

This sounds a little scary

My child loves quests, and this sounds fun, but before I would ever consider this app, I would want to hear from parents who use it. I know, educate your kids on net safety and don’t let them go out alone. But this game sounds like an open invitation to a pedophile to lure a child into an ambush. The review recommends to accompany kids “younger than teens” but teens with mobility options that don’t involve parents seem especially at risk. How have parents dealt with this? Who gets to send your kids messages? (“social media” sounds rather broad)
