Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that skaters are seen slipping and falling in the footage of their practices leading up to the performance. Later episodes feature footage of bad falls, bloody scrapes, and large bruises. Occasionally, in the practice tapes, a skater mutters a mild curse in frustration. Some of the costumes are a little skimpy. After each performance the skaters are critiqued, sometimes severely, and scored by panel of judges.
Is It Any Good?
This is a great show to share with kids, especially those still trying to find their own extracurricular niche. Kids will learn about sticking with a challenge, cooperatively working with a partner, and the benefits of practice, practice, practice. In the first go-around, Bruce Jenner at age 55 has stepped up to be paired with another 1976 Olympian, Tai Babilonia. With chronically injured knees and no skating background, Jenner is a striking example of why this show sends a good message to kids. He demonstrates that you never know what you're capable of doing unless you try.
Though skating may not be everyone's sport -- even as a spectator -- Skating with Celebrities sends a healthy message to kids about trying something new, learning from critiques, and the importance of having a good time.
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.
