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.

Great to help kids reflect on themselves.

The show prominently features interpersonal issues, most being at the hands of the eponymous 'Braceface' herself, Sharon Spitz. Though each episode varies, Braceface shows some of the issues most kids will face in a more critical light than most; but I feel it's important to help your children understand why the reasoning of the characters isn't conducive to healthy friendships where those problems arise.
