When my kids were little, I always tried to find shows on PBS that dealt with topics they were dealing with in school. For us, they seemed to learn better when there was a story involved somehow instead of me trying to explain to them in adult terms. We even used Veggie Tales to help them learn right from wrong attitudes. It was always a blessing to watch them grasp what was being said or taught.
Did you know Netflix offers the same thing?
There are so many great shows on Netflix right now that deal with today’s hard topics — bullying, sexuality, divorce, grief, loss and more.
I have had the privilege of watching some of them over the course of the last few months, so I thought I would share my favorites so far!
One Day at a Time
The adventures of the Alvarez family leave no stone un-turned and can help crack the shell on these tough issues and open up family conversations, which your kids may be more ready for than you think.
Fuller House is one of those kind of shows that you want your kids watching when they are considering doing something bad! It’s even great for adults too who are struggling with tough decisions.
For instance, DJ — whose husband died the year before, is struggling with whether she is ready to really start dating again. She has 2 kids to think about, and tons of prospects who are lining up at her door — but is she really ready?
More Than This When YOU subscribe to Netflix
These are just a couple of my favorite choices right now. There are so many more you can watch when you sign up to become a member of Netflix.
