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.

Watch out!

Although I was so excited that my tween was playing an educational game and increasing her vocabulary, turns out that they encourage players to make friends and join chat rooms the more they play. Not knowing exactly how this works, we discovered that our child joined a chatroom called "sex101" and it is very concerning who may be on this site and the context. Watch out, I will delete this app immediately.
