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.

Do not allow your children to watch this show!

I enjoyed it as an adult due to the overall family comedy format, but there were some very disturbing jokes the writers had written in for the 10-year-old characters, and it occurred on many occasions. The lines I mention borderline child p***graphy. Also, many s***ual lines written for the adult and teen characters. Does the FCC have any standards anymore?
