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.

okay if you don't object to foul language

This is not a show that can be claimed family-friendly, unless the family is one that accepts foul language and blatant disrespect for parental authority.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing

Had potential, but disappointed us...

This show had potential. We watched the first episode, and I was extremely disappointed to hear a mother of a middle school aged girl explain to her husband that the daughter wasn't "ready" yet to have a sexual relationship, as if it was merely a lifestyle choice that a 13 year old is mature enough to decide.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
