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.

Amazing Site

This Social Media is great. My home-schooled child has made many friends, some from all over the world. The education they receive may not be book smart, but this site teaches them how to be a better and responsible person especially online! I have no idea why it is rated so low. The site is the only I have found that is monitored 24/7 and allows check using my parent pin and see all the activity that my child does online. It is so secure and is a good place for kids to spread their wings. I am so glad I found this site and so is my child. I really love the no bully stance and my child loves reading all the articles, playing the games and chatting with her friends online!

Grom Social - A grandparent perspective

The Grom Social website is a safe, fun, adventurous website for children from 6 to 16 years of age. The site promotes no bullying, no cussing and is monitored 24/7. My wife and I are not sure why the site was not rated on those qualities. Grandparents (like my wife and I) want a site that is safe for our grandchildren. One that promotes their positive development while being fun and educational. Unfortunately, the Common Sense Media evaluation appeared to focus on the "sexism" of girl avatars. This omitted the equally important criteria of safety and learning. Perhaps a more objective review (non-feminist reviewers) would present the Grom Social website as the fun, educational, user friendly and safe environment that the site is intended to be. Thanks for listening.
