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.

Sends Terrible Message to Kids

Other users have it right: Rainbow High is extremely shallow. Kids also don't need to be worried about how many "likes" or "followers" they should have on any social media platform, but it focuses way too much on that. This show has zero substance.

Very shallow

My 8 year old daughter has watched the two episodes from Season 1 that's on Netflix UK. I can't believe how shallow this programme is. It's all based on them becoming more popular, how many views and followers they have. I definitely feel my daughter doesn't need to be worrying about these things yet. This should be more for teenagers who have social media. Even then I know there's a lot of bullying in schools these days because of how many followers or views you have and this does nothing but promote this sort of shallow behaviour. There is no educational aspect of this. I'm very unpopular in my house now as I've told my daughter not to watch it again.
