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.

the ultimate f.r.i.e.n.d.s review

I think despite the occasional sexual joke this is the perfect show for an 11-year-old who likes drama and is maybe dramatic herself. the show has lots of humor and doesn't think it is too much it is funny and has good life lessons. this is the review of a bunch of parents on one account. this is the perfect show for kids tweens and people between the age of 11 to 14 . please consider this option it is a great show.
