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.

Dad Camp is the Best

I am 50+ and my daughter is 25. We love the show and cannot wait to see the next week. I think that males are not aware of what they helped create and need a touch of reality. I think that maybe more information on safe sex would be helpful for the younger viewers. I love Dr. Jeff and his participation projects for the males. I would like to know the outcomes after the couples leave. I would like to see baby pictures and hope that both mother and father can be always be a part of the child's life even if as a couple they do stay together.
