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.

watch this if you want your children hooking up with their grandparents

DO NOT LET YOUR CHILDREN WATCH THIS INCREDIBLY INAPPROPRIATE MOVIE!! They all say 50 shades of Grey is bad, but they have not seen this. My son now shoots mustard into his mouth to have powers like foodboy. The doctor is extremely concerned due to his unhealthy eating habits, and now we have to pay for that asshole’s medical bills. So let your children watch this if you want to be in major debt and resort to new ways of getting money (selling Coca Cola obviously… no snitching…. What happens on common sense media stays on common sense media.) In addition, the sexual tension between Foodboy and his grandmother made my son horny and he is now trying to sweet talk his grandma to unlock his food powers. But unfortunately, because my grandparents are first cousins it is rumored the great grandchildren will unlock special powers after spending “one on one” time with grandma *wink wink.* Although grandma is extremely into their new relationship, I am trying to get her to date older men, but dating my 13 year old son really set us back.
