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.

Gang War and Racism in a kids show?! Surprisingly well done...

This series is VERY shallow most of the time, encouraging stereotypes and gender roles to the point of being painful. I would not recommend it for the most part. However 'Fright On' shows a very nice change of pace, flat out addressing racism and gang violence while still being appropriate for kids.

MONSTER HIGH fights against racism!

My daughter LOVES everything Monster High! Because of the way they look, I was a bit hesitant to allow them (we banned Bratz). However, this movie has a great message about inclusion, overcoming racism, and positive self-esteem. I agree that this would make a good weekly show!
