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.

Dr. K Role Models for our children & unmasks pet care possibilities

Personally, I dont feel that children should not watch medical surgical shows. I think it provides good role models of caring and possible employment goals for their future. The surgeries performed are not bloody, and there is a lot of dialog throughout the surgeries. I also feel like it will help both children and adults realize how important proper care ,and how precise some animal's care needs to be. Some people may own let's say rabbits their whole life and never run into medical issues, but this show shows the ups and downs that can happen. Also, watching this show can save pets lives, as they might have seen an episode with signs of pet emergencies. As children get older. They will let you know if they don't like to watch this kind of show. It's not going to damage a child to see the brief surgical clips... it may even help them as they grow to know what kind of pet they do or do not want to own. Both my boy's have watched this type of show growing up one wants to be a phlebotomist and the other is in the carpet and flooring industry. The one recently went on a job shadow and thinking of becoming a vet tech, where he'd still use phlebotomy! Bottom line, you know your kids... you know what's in their best interest, and if something is too intense for them.
