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.

psuedo seizures not fake!

The untold ER show about Psuedo Seizures was not a good example of a true person who has a diagnosis of this disease. Now called non epileptic siezues. They are very real, and can NOT be controlled by the patient in any way. They are very painful, embarassing, violating, isolating, and terrifying. This show needs to become more educated before they put someone like this on, with a diagnosis like this. They are only furthering the ignorance of so many emergency room Drs. Who are in desperate need of education in this diagnosis. As well as compassion. Please be more conciderate of people who have this diagnosis and are treated deplorably due to non educated Drs and nurses in the medical field.
