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.

Not appropriate for my 13 year old.

I am really disappointed to see common sense media say this is appropriate for 13+. Really? Don't be a part of the problem. This is not okay for a 13 year old. Let them be kids. Very very disappointed in common sense media. "Sex, Romance & Nudity A girl makes and shares a sex tape, telling another girl … "I deserve a nice piece of ass once in a while …" A teacher is having multiple affairs with women at the high school." Not okay by me.
