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.

"A must-read book for every 8-year-old"

Wait, no. :-) This site teaches important internet lessons about internet hazards such as meatspin, goatse, tubgirl, and many others. It might also teach you how to laugh, and how to love (my sites particularly ;-). You could turn the rare viewing of inappropriate content into a teachable moment; I do that for my kids Mr Ross and Tony all the time. Until next time, Dr-L337 is... signing off. :-)

From an avid YTMND user and author

As an avid YTMND user I would like to chime in on my thoughts. YTMND encourages creativity by allowing users to create sites. Because YTMND is 100% user created content like youtube or wikipedia YTMND has contents of all maturity levels. The content on YTMND is no better or worse than any public forum with user created content like youtube. In fact much of the content on YTMND are just "mash-ups" or parodies of content from from youtube or the news. To understand the merits of user created content, I highly recommend looking at the YTMND's hall of fame. And as always the best way to know what your kids are looking at on the internet is to browse with them.
