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.

Thanks for the additional therapy.

I was watching an episode the other day with my adopted 8yo son. He was in foster care for sexual abuse. I was shocked to see at the end of the show the actors were dancing with a purple womans bra. Now after 3 years of therapy for his inappropriate behaviors, I now have to explain to him why children should not be using an undergarmet as a play device. If your TV show has to use sex for children under the age of 18 to entice them to watch you, get a better writing staff. I now have to take my child to see his therapist for in appropriate boundaries and how to process this visual sexual enticement on a kids tv show. By the way, I have blocked it from my tv. Thanks for "helping" my child!

Too much sex
