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.

Sims three is GREAT!!

I love this game a lot! Children can have the expirence to live the life they really want. Ms. Standalot, my son's teacher, let him play it because his grades were really low, and he is having trouble with his Brother. His grades went up 50 points from the grammer corections in this game! Also, the multipacation use is very high, that is what he did not like, but he learned the times table in NO TIME flat! Please try this fun game out!

5th grade for sims

I think this game is a very good game for 5th graders when they are board or overwelmed. Playing this game can calm you down during hard homework, or anytime. This sims is not like the other (really inapropriate) sim games, other then pet's. Have fun in your game!
