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.

Best show I've ever seen!

H2o is an amazing show! Although some scenes can be inappropriate and so can the content. In season 3, Bella calls Sophie a b**ch, and "hell" is used 2 times. In a episode in season 3, Nathan tells Cleo to wear something short and tight. Kissing and making out combined have happened a lot. But if your kid doesn't know what kissing is you need to have the talk. This show doesn't expose my daughter to anything she doesn't already know. These 3 girls are into swimming and are very outdoorsy. This show is great! Have a great 2022
