STREAM TEAM ALERT
MAY 2016: THERE'S AN EP FOR THAT!
 
 

From tackling peer pressure to learning to achieve five whole minutes without a cell phone in hand, addressing tough topics with your kids head-on can be hard. Even with the littlest ones, it’s not always easy to explain why you can’t get them that cute puppy and why they need to be nice to their sister. But with Netflix, your kid’s favourite shows can open the door for these tricky, sometimes awkward (hello, parents of tweens and teens!) conversations.

Netflix is host to a variety of family-friendly shows that explore a range of real-life issues with equal measures of humour, angst and heart. No matter your situation, chances are there’s a show and episode that can kickstart a dialogue around the topic just by watching it together.

This month we want to hear some of the best conversations you’ve had with your kids sparked by watching shows together.
