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.

Underlying lbgtq themes. Another attempt to subtly direct these themes to young kids.

OK for age appropriate kids (your decision) . Once the underlying same sex and progressive views present themselves, my younger children are out! Maybe have your kids watch that are old enough to deal with this effort to "program".
age 5+

A pleasant show of African American Family life that is not political or divisive.

Craig has a very decent family with great values. They do show some of the reality of African American Family life that people of other ethnicities can embrace and identify. Craig has other friends of other races and ethnicities. Two of his best friends are white and he relates to them as a leader that cares about them. Craig and his friends are also very creative and will edify with good but crazy entertainment scenes.
