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.

Just crazy people doing crazy stunts

Travis Pastrana is a famous racer... He started nitro circus awhile ago and it's involved into movies, shows and live events. You have skateboarders, moto racers, snowboarders, bmx riders... And random crazy people! They do stunts and crazy things around the world. Sometimes the language is a bit mature but it's rare. The only problem is the stunts, but if you teach your kid right from wrong you won't have any problems. My 3 & 5 yr old nephews watch it, no problem. They do talk about family and dreams a lot too... It's not just all about crazy stunts.
