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.

Best show ever

I like how it is so silly and how they work out problems. They always stick together as family even when things get rough.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models

Wait. How is this TV-G?

Hold on. So... we are a totally lax family. Recently, our 6 yr old switched from watching Blues Clues, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and Bluey... to all of these old Nickelodeon shows. Look, again, we are a chill family, we've let him watch all the Harry Potters, and most of the Marvel Avengers movies. But I tell you, his behavior, attitude, and words have changed after he started watching these old Nickelodeon shows. But this one specifically.... every other word is calling someone stupid or a jerk. And why are these young tweens talking about how "cute" someone is, lots of dating, impressing each other to like them, etc. I finally went into Netflix today to change the kids profile rating from PG to G. And was shocked to see that most of these shows with stupid, jerk, dating, crush, etc, were all shows rated G. I am super disappointed in our tv rating system. This blows. because there are GOOD shows that we don't mind (Inbestigators, anyone?) that will now be blocked when we change our tv allowances in Netflix to TV-Y.
