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.

I've a 9 year old daughter who loves this

The downside is that she mimics it. Its full of false drama and over the top tantrums. I actively eeked out how to block this on netflix.
