Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Uplifting and emotional, this series dedicates 30 minutes each week to telling tales that need to be told but often go unnoticed. Its subjects are regular people who have turned adversity into a desire to make positive changes on behalf of other people, and their selflessness will inspire viewers and perhaps encourage an interest in carving their own community service niche to "pay it forward" in their own way.

Everyday Health's message will hit home most effectively with tweens, although there's nothing to exclude younger viewers, provided that a parent is at the ready to help explain some of the medical references to injuries and ailments. Be aware that all of these stories have a strong emotional quotient, whether it's a happy ending to a medical battle or a patient's admirable outlook on a terminal condition. Occasionally the dialogue references death and dying, so it may be unsuitable for youngsters who can't handle this kind of real-life drama.

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.
