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.

Drinking scenes in some episodes sends wrong message

Parents should be aware that the drinking is not always just a casual thing at the bar. These young adults are shown having body shots off of each other in at least 1 episode from year 1 and 1 episode from year 2. Having only a naive 10 year old not sure what age would be appropriate but sorry 12 is too young to send the message that because you work so hard towards your dreams it is OK to behave and cut loose like this even if it's only once in a while. Sends the wrong message.

Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
