Swap TV good show

I like it because it gives kids a chance to see what it is like to do other things and learn a lot about stuff. I wonder if they will have episodes about bullying and particularly the kind of bullying called gangstalking.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This series reminds viewers of the benefits of looking at the world from a different perspective, which is ripe with positive messages for kids. Often the participants show some apprehension about their ability to complete the tasks set out for them, but their willingness to try always translates into the satisfaction of success. Similarly, experiencing a different way of life gives them a greater sense of respect for the diversity around them.

Kids will like watching the teens try new things and might take an interest in some of the hobbies they see in the show, which gives families a good reason to get out and try new things, see new places, and meet new people together.

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.
