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 diversityupdate.
Kids see a tween”s resilience in coping with a major life change and assuming a leadership role on a new team. The journey isn”t always easy, and some classmates make it more difficult for her than it needs to be, but she refuses to give up. The story is rich in themes about friendship, teamwork, perseverance, and family bonds, as well as reminders that winning the game isn”t the only measure of success.
Devin is an excellent role model, particularly for girls. She”s self-confident, industrious, determined, and willing to take risks. She”s also physically active and values her personal health. Mirabelle is the opposite; she”s lazy and uncommitted to school or her team, but Devin proves to be a positive influence on her.
Parents need to know that The Kicks is the story of an aspiring soccer star who faces adversity and becomes a leader on the field. It”s inspired by a book series of the same name by decorated soccer player Alex Morgan. The series is a wholesome watch; Devin is a very likable role model who finds strength and inspiration in her family but must fight her own fights among her peers and teammates. In doing so, she inspires those around her to work hard and believe in themselves, even when their efforts don’t show on the scoreboard. One problematic teammate is often selfish and mean, but Devin”s positive attitude ultimately wins the day.
