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.

awful learning technique

this is awful and it is way too long. they have horrible "definitions" they are literally just synonyms when they say its definitions. and if you click on an answer too fast its annoying because it says "slow down there partner" like, im not your partner and dont tell me to slow down. because once the timer is done (which can go on for like 10 slow seconds) then the answer i clicked on "too fast" was correct anyways. the "too fast timer" needs to stop. and they need to enunciate the words better when they say it and you have to type it. its just an awful way to teach. (also for the "i think its for kids...." selection, i dont think anyone should be on that awful website) but i still have to do this because im still in school. this gives you a headache. teachers listen to this, dont put your kids through this awful mess.
