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.

Spoiled rotten

I have a daughter that became pregnant at 13 years old and now she has 5 children with the same father. My daughter is 28 now and we all live together and I love all of them. We struggle everyday and we don't get paid. So what would these teen mom's be like if they made it without payment, so it could teach your kids to not have babies until you are mature, because it is hard glamorizing being a teen parents, because it is hard on me , I have help raise the kids , but the father works hard for what they have. Show a program of single mothers that freed themselves for abuse and ideas how to help them and their children. Or teen mom that have children and had abuse in their life and are making it by. I am a survivor of abuse my whole life until I got free in 2000 I struggled lost My children and did what I had to get them back. I love to see if their are people like me and survive because I can't leave my home without fear.
