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.

Great show to watch with your tweens and especially teens

The relationship between Christina Hawthorne and her daughter Camille is something teens/tweens can handle. Perhaps they can get a bird's eyeview of what their parent's go through trying to be be there for their kids and hold down their jobs. It can also help parents see what their teens/tweens may be going through and it can help open up lines of communication and deal with issues of trust beween them. I strongly suggest watching as a family to really benefit from the show and discuss it together.
