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.

Back to Parental guidance please

I view this as presenting an adult topic to children that is best to let parents handle as they see fit.

Many parents will want to know this film is about a homosexual couple

Common Sense indicates of this short film, "Its lack of iffy content makes it appropriate for all ages... ." There are many parents that would disagree with that assessment, particularly parents of younger children. Here is the content that I found "iffy": - A man shows affection for another man by touching his shoulders. - A photo throughout the film clearly shows two men in an intimate relationship. - A man pretending to speak to his parents says, "Mom, Dad, this is my boyfriend." - A "Men on Fire" calendar features a man posing as Mr. January. - Two men kiss.
