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.

Some things you'll struggle to explain to a tween

Some of the language and circumstances were either hard to explain to my tween, or I wound up telling her that we'll talk in more detail in a few years. Namely, in an early scene, references to getting l&$d and etc. There are a lot of scenes of teens kissing or making out, and fumbling to open buttons in one. One scene of obviously drunken behavior by teens at a party. The main character takes a while to find her moral compass and makes a number of poor choices along the way. Not a model of good behavior, and impossible for a younger tween to understand why.
