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.

good, but make sure mature

i think that Tessa is a good person, but it is high school, in that there is things that kids might not be able to see. it is a great series for mid-teen, adult, and maybe a little bit younger but this does talk about stuff that is referred to in high school so watch out, this is iffy.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much sex
age 18+

not for kids

it is certainly not for kids and every episode is getting worse. Tonights episode featured two strippers giving lap dances bu nowadays there aren't any shows available to kids that don't contain sexual undertones
