Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

Similar to shows like Masterchef Junior and American Ninja Warrior, kids and parents will enjoy watching this wholesome reality show together. The contestants are great role models and show lots of perseverance as they overcome challenges. Kids will be inspired by seeing fellow young people succeeding in really tough mental and physical feats. While Karma is a competition, and tensions do arise, the contestants handle the situations with openness and maturity (adult reality stars might learn a thing or two from watching). The show also does a great job of reflecting real-life tough stuff like friendships, romantic relationships, and self esteem. While content is appropriate for younger kids, they might not love the teenage relationships (both romantic and platonic), but teens and tweens will find it all most compelling.

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.
