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.

Take a detour from "Detour" and pick something worthwhile

I will be so happy when the trend of putting young kids in racy TV shows comes to an end. Swearing, sex, drugs... it's already a bad show if it's just an teenager-adult cast. But throwing KIDS into the mix and letting them be exposed to that trash? No way, dude. Two thumbs down.

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
