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.

Shame on teachers...if that's you, shame on you!

Ok, so I couldn't answer the above question correctly because they did not give me the choice of not appropriate or under age content. I chose language but honestly let's face it...morals is really what I wanted to pick. My daughter is being made to read this book as part of her grade 8 English class curriculum and I am disgusted that a teacher would choose this book to teach English. Seriously. Need I say more. As and adult I can search to find the humor in this story, however in our day and age of cyber bullying and anti bullying causes do we really need to teach our children with content like this. The author may think this is funny however the situation I find myself in with my 13 year old daughter being subjected to this without choice is unspeakably evil.

This title has:

Too much swearing
