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.

I wish this was something that was out there when I was a teen and in trouble. I was these kids I did drugs I drank i had sex and in the end I became a teen mom! I've turned my life around and grew up because i had to do what was right! I couldn't be that kid... but if one adult would of took the time to ask me what was wrong in stead of nagged me or yelled at me like I was some wild animal I could of changed... this guy should so do a season two in canada our children today need this reality check life's not like it use to be in the 70's the world is rough and parents today have stoped being parents and became friends or not even caring because you have gave up when thats not what they need. Kids need discipline rules structure!
