Kids Ask Dr. Friendastic reassures young listeners that the social issues they face among their peers are common concerns, and Dr. Eileen Kennedy-Moore offers advice they can use to take positive action. What makes the podcast so easy to recommend is the warmth and compassion Dr. Kennedy-Moore brings to her feedback. She breaks down concepts such as social boundaries and bullying for young listeners. She also helps kids understand why they feel the way they do, oftentimes guiding them to empathize with why other kids might be saying or doing the things that they are. This open communication can have a lasting impact on how kids relate to one another. The gentle approach and expert advice make Kids Ask Dr. Friendtastic worth a listen for any household with school-age children.

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.
