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.

What is too mature, they don't understand

My 8, 10 and 12 year old loved this so much that I have had to make sure they are not binging too much. Much better than most of what is on YouTube or TickTok. At least they are learning a first year philosophy course despite some vulgarities that they don't understand. No swearing though because you can't curse in the afterlife.
