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.

The butt review

Google is for everybody. Kids are able to use google if they are searching all the right stuff. There is some bad horrible stuff you could search on Google but a lot of good educational stuff to. It is ok for kids as long as you don't just have them look at random stuff. You can find violence and blood sex cussing on Google but it is ok if you just don't let your child looking that up and know what your kid is doing.
