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.

Name calling

Not thrilled with the name-calling by the older brother. If you discourage calling people dumb and cry-babies this is likely not the series for your family. But it does show a common dynamic between an older brother and younger sister. I just wish it did it with better role modeling.
