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.

It's awesome!!!

This show could be watched by any age of kids, but it is best for kids in the age range that the actors and actresses play. They play 16 and 17 year old kids who love to act in tv shows, So Random and Mackenzie Falls. It gives the different problems that kids may face in the show business world and problems that they may face in life, such as in the episode Poll'd Apart, when Tawni got upset because Sherona kept posting mean things about her. When everyone figured how to beat Sherona, they made it perfectly blunt that, "if you don't care about what someone says about you, they can't hurt you." And it is true, if you let someone know that their opinions bother you, they will keep up with it, however if you just let their words go in one ear and out the other, they will stop picking on you.
