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 but...

It is a relatively tame program and has for the most part good family value - but Ann seems to find herself in situations where men try to make inappropriate advances and he usually manages to fend them off - so that is uncomfortable. Actually they even use the word 'fresh' to describe some of the mashers. And she also gets into a lot of illegal scrapes - inadvertently. Also her boyfriend is kind of charming and reliable but sometimes he is short tempered and isn't so nice to her - so I have to tell the children that sometimes their interaction is inappropriate. Also there is some kissing with Ann and her boyfriend - which is relatively innocent but we teach our children that that is reserved for married couples - so maybe we are too old fashioned but nonchalant physical contact is not something we condone. Also there are some suggestive episodes and some innuendo (that seems to go over the kids heads) - but in some instances the outfits were a bit revealing - and my children were surprised because in general Ann is usually modest. So at times I am not certain if I should let the kids continue watching. Also they make fun in lots of situations that are hard to explain away - like the mob, ineffectual police, and goofy judges - so some of the themes are quite adult The kids like the show a lot though - and in light of the other garbage on TV I guess this is the much lesser of all evils.
