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.

Bad Teacher -sexual content worse than listed !

we started watching with 12 yr old, had to turn off in the first 15 minutes. Talking about getting hard and sucking ****. Certainly not part of the review of mild sexual content. OMG -- its way bad for anyone under 18 after watching it !!!

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
