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.

Great show

Well i really like this show i love the whole cast, but on Season 4 when Emma gets pregnant, she and Dave where talking on sofa about her morning sickness, Dave tells her he got her crackers or something cause he remembered how sick she was pregnant with their son, well how could that happen, becauae season 1 eposide one they are driving to new house and the Son tells Dave Mom doesnt like that were moving here, yadayada, amd Dave tells him well ur mom cant tell us other wise, or something like that. And now all of a sudden Emma is Dave son mom, come on stick with the scripts already, u cant just change who the kids birth mom is like really.
