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.

Art Imitates Life. .

Art Imitates Life...even if that life is not YOURS. It may be someone else's story it is telling. Tyler Perry expertly tells the stories of people who are often silent. The themes are definitely of a mature nature. We live in a very broken world filled with broken people. When we perpetuate a false "healthy" reality in our homes, children receive many mixed messages when they go out into the world. This can be very damaging for them. Tyler Perry's characters are colorful and reflect who people can really be behind closed doors. I wish I had a Madea growing up! A REAL human being. Someone who has a moral compass, whose actions align with who she really is. Someone who lives her truth, and encourages others to live theirs. I believe this movie should only be viewed when parents are ready to have authentic conversations with their children about certain aspects of life.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
