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 hate this show.

I hate this show sm. It's so cringe and they teach poorly about social anxiety disorder and I have it so I have every right to say so. The parents are also so poorly executed. Please make a better show I'm begging.

The show was awesome. It was a relief watching something nice, fun and super _real life_ for a change (u know, rather than magic and fights all day long). Has great messages of acceptance and friendship. There lotsa romance in the end episodes, but nothing a tween can’t handle. It was very family friendly in my opinion.
