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 love Taneisha

I love the show, especially Taneisha. That young lady is such an iinspiration. She is focused and motiivated to do well and lets nothing get her down. I think it should show us as parents/grandparents that state of bad health that our young people are in. We want them to outlive us so we need to be able to set a positive environment for our kids NOW to end childhood obesity.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models

not pleased with message

I watched the show where the two oys were reprimanded for throwing things at each other. instead of giving one kid 1 week with nothing to do, how about some supervised exercises> or a paper on how this experience will help later in life? sitting alone for a week is a bad message for doing nothing. nothing!The title is self defeating.
