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 show

If u raise your kids right then they can watch this & not have to worry.
age 18+

Horrible and Sad

I don't believe any kid of any age (including teenagers) should watch this. It's a sad representation of not just the south but of youth. Don't waste your time. Lead your kids to watch just as entertaining shows but with more substance.
