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.

Pornography ads (Chapters- Interactive Stories)

Like The game. The ads for chapters interactive stories are disgusting. I would not want my preteen granddaughter playing this game and seeing these ads. The ads are offensive to me.

Dumbing Down

Word Stacks has a puzzle it calls Verbs Beginning With A. When did about or abyss become verbs? Do not allow your children to play a game that is designed by idiots.
