Kick-starting Dialogue With Your Kids And Netflix!

Raising children can sometimes be overwhelming and most of the time they hit you when you are down with a question or position that you are not ready to answer. That’s why I am thrilled that Netflix has made kick-starting dialogue with your kids easy, because we as parents are not always prepared – let’s face it we mostly are not EVER prepared for those hormonal little bodies and the endless gush of intrigue they posess! From sibling arguments, to peer pressure and body image, Netflix has parents covered!

Check out the list below, and I guarantee you will find an episode that will help you in more than one way or another and remember to watch with your kiddos too, so that you can continue the conversation later.
