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.

I like the honesty of the show and it showing people being imperfect but the language is so coarse

I just don't understand why is the language so coarse and why is there so much kissing on the show, with all the kissing and touching on the show, I don't think that will be safe for a teen to watch, I'm pretty sure with me speaking on behalf of all parents, we want our kids watching less explicit content and not more. But I can say that I like the honesty of the show now though because in school kids are most definitely not perfect but can we not show and say everything on television but still be honest at the same time and just find a better way to be honest so people won't have to hide who they truly are in real life but also keep it safe for all to watch at the same time.

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
Too much sex
Too much swearing
