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.

Excellent series on the challenges of being transgender

This is a series that will appeal broadly to anyone with a desire to have an honest, realistic view of the challenges of being trans. Evie M. does an amazing job portraying the lead character --- no wonder... she has been there and lived the mean-teen behavior of middle schoolers and the insecurity of life being a roller coaster. Kudos to the producers of this series!
