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.

Riveting, emotional tear jerker.

A little confused at first, but after the Marines let this guy serve 10 tours, yes he cracked. But he adored his truly adorable kids! Dad tried to keep a grip on reality and his 8 and 10 year old sons did a great job of stepping up as best their emotional age and love for dad let them. A true 5 star tear wrenching show!
