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.

Non-Professionals exploit vulnerable people

I wasn't surprised to see Dr. Phil's name in the biographies of the people running Marriage Boot Camp. This is nothing more than a watered down EST or Landmark Forum for troubled married couples. Non-professionals (therefore no accountability nor skill) are exploiting these vulnerable people. I would like to see TLC, one of my favorite channels, drop this from their listings.

Marriage Camp has my heart

I love the non-traditional approach to counseling in this show. I worry that the directors are not qualified, but it appears that the couples find the solutions they want. I found myself wrapped up in their issues and more involved than a normal reality show. I'm not sure it would be good for kids to watch.
