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.

Such a beautiful movie

age 2+

This is the best film I could have showed my kids.

I personally feel like the characters in this film should be know an worshiped by everyone. The plot development of this film is phenomenal, seeing the characters go through such changes as their parents getting divorced, alcoholism, and many more heavy topics makes this film so much better. This film gives off the message of not caring about what people say to you, and to ignore them, and to stand up for yourself, without fighting. I showed this to my kids last night and they said that they loved the film. If you show your kids this film, you will be getting the best parent mug from them written with a sharpie on a black mug they got on clearance at Walmart for $0.05.

This title has:

Great messages
