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.

Cute show

Important themes to explore. Regret the many references to sex. Rating did not indicate the extent to which this theme runs throughout the show. I wish I would have read parent reviews more carefully. Normal for children and teens to be interested in romance, but don’t appreciate use of language like “horny” in anTV program for families. Also, many references to the mother being “hot”.

Too much sex
