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 TV Ever

This really shows people that hard work always pay off good at the end. I really enjoy watching all the undercover boss shows. Sometimes I need a tissue towards the end of the show.

Always work hard & treat people with respect, the rewards are plenty!!!

This show is an excellent version of Undercover Boss, with the Celebrities, such as Idina Menzel (singer "Frozen"). The episode with Idina Menzel was breathtaking and a real tear jerker - in a good way. She meets talented people with various hardships, and helps them in more ways than you can imagine. This isn't just her giving $5,000 or $10,000, it is that plus a job, plus a place to live even (to 1 girl). It is a very optimistic show. Great to watch with the kids. (only possible con would be to caution older children that this is a show, & it is more about working hard and being good, than expecting this to happen to you)

Great role models
