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.

age 10+

Sigh.

Was not 100% terrible so there is that. But could not get over how selfish her dad was and self centered seemed to completely ignore his daughter and her wants and needs, for his own wants and new family terrible perant. (Hard not dislike him.)
age 16+

Not appropriate for young or sensative children

There is a line ' if she was my sister I would kill myself' not something I wanted my children to hear. Bullying, manipulating behaviour throughout. Was really disappointed.
