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.

Dumb Show!

This show and Counting on gives young girls the wrong message. Girls should go to college. This show only focus on young girls getting married, sex then the baby. Sham on you TLC. The family family don't watch tv but want you to watch them. They have made plenty of money off if tv. Boycott this ridiculous out dated show.

This title has:

Too much sex
