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.

Ego driven Society..Hiding behind Religion

I think All parents should watch this...It shows how the Ego driven Parent abuses their children to feed their own ego and to hide their own insecurities they felt as children..They want to create the bullies they ran from in school instead of creating the Loving and Kind Children they needed and the Ones this society so needs...To hide behind any religion and do this to your children is a disgrace. I just don't see Jesus or any God telling you to get out there and be number One ...Focus on just yourself and forget making real friends. Also to Not to listen to your own soul and figure out what you really want out of your life.. Since when did being a Kind..Loving..Smart Human not be enough...I think this world needs so many more humans like that and less of what these parents are creating.. This is great for the Parent who needs validation you have done right by Not following in behind these kinds of parents...They can be Bullies to us as well.....Be thankful you have listened to your own heart not them and guided your children in a healthy and loving way thru life... Thank you for making this film...I will pass it along to everyone...
