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.

Mild to No Heat

I think ten but it's also good to base your opinion on your child's maturity level. There is also a Jep and Jessica series, which I think is a little more appropriate. Make sure you watch the episodes you are planning to show your kids.

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing

I like this show a lot, but the reason why I highlighted the (unneeded) swearing part is because of the (random) fake bleeps that make it seem as if profanity was being used, when there's no cursing at all. Overall, my family is reinforcing family ties first while putting business second, matching the great messages.
