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.

Child truly disturbed

I am normally so careful to show my 4 year old only gentle media and I thought this would be ok but it totally was not. In my mind it was violent and the kids in this were very mean to each other. The scene where the house is ruined my child started crying and I turned it off right away and he was truly disturbed by it the rest of the day. My child has not had much exposure to media but still this is definitely not for 3 year olds as it states! Why teach children at such a young age that kids are mean to each other??

Peanuts at Its Best!

I know that the Christmas episode is more "classic", but I actually enjoy watching this one more. There are some very funny scenes, such as the department store decked out for Christmas at Eastertime and of course Peppermint Patty trying to teach Marcie how to make Easter eggs. But I love most is how all the various, seemingly unrelated threads all hilariously come together at the end.
