All Things Canadian #Netflix

Fireworks

We celebrate our birthdays yearly, so it is only customary to celebrate Canada’s birthday with friends, fireworks and BBQ’s (can’t forget a day off work – thank you very much Canada) which is customary!

Every Monday of the Canada day long weekend, my entire family gets together for dinner and the kids play outside. Typically my kids can never go watch fireworks because you have to wait until the sun goes down, but this year the neighbour had a fireworks display early for all the little kids and just as we were leaving my parents house they were starting so my little one got to see and the smile that came over his face was truly amazing. I then took my older one to his school where they were putting on fireworks once the sun went down and he truly had the best time sitting with his friends from his class and dancing around. It really was a night to remember.

In celebration of Canada’s birthday, Netflix is streaming all things Canadian

Try Explaining it with Netflix #StreamTeam

Netlfix

These days I find that I am having one way conversations with my kids, I am talking and nobody is listening. They either are running around the house hyper as can be, fighting with each other over g-d knows what or they have their heads dug into some tech device.

I have found that I can teach my kids a thousand lessons, but truly they couldn’t care less or they just tune me out, but if their favorite Netflix show teaches them the same lesson they somehow find it very interesting and repeat it to me as if I haven’t previously said the same thing!!!!

Looking for some show recommendations?

May Netflix

  1. The Hive – teaching you about sibling rivalry
    2. Veggietales: in the house – teaching about responsibility
    3. Puffin Rock – following the rules
    4. The Adventures of Puss in Boots – teach about self-love
    5. Project MC2 – all about teamwork
    6. Fuller House – Peer Pressure
    7. The Fosters – Actions have Consequences
    8. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – Self-Improvement
    9. Glee – Body Image (one of my most favorite shows)

If your kids aren’t listening to you, try tackling some real life issues with some of these Netflix shows and see if that works for you.

Back to School with Netflix #StreamTeam

Netlfix

The weather has spoken and summer is coming to an end. Camp is over, programs for the fall have been set and your child’s back to school backpack is almost ready to go. Hard to believe that this is the end, it’s just too short.

Now it’s time to start hyping up back-to-school and talking to your kids about appropriate classroom behaviour (well at least I do) and what to expect, but that is never an easy conversation especially with the little one’s because they just don’t get it. Sometimes our television friends do the best job explaining and with these new Netflix titles they just might understand the underlying message.

For the Little Guys 

Back to School netflix

1. Curious George
2. Zoboomafoo
3. Yo Gabba Gabba! (my big guy has been watching the show for years and it’s amazing how many lessons he has picked up from this show)
4. Walking with Dinosaurs
5. Planet Earth: The Complete Collection
6. The Adventures of Chuck & Friends
7. Animal Mechanicals (teaches kids about working together to get the job done)
8. The Magic School Bus
9. The Cat in the Hat
10. Dinotrux (the new AMAZING series teaching kids to work together using their individual skills and problem solve)
11. Ever After High: Way too Wonderland

Best of luck with Back to School to you the parent (we need the luck … well I know I do) and of course the kiddies

What’s Old is New Again with Netflix #StreamTeam #TBT

Netlfix

Who doesn’t love a good #TBT. Well, what about throwin’ it back to the old school TV shows you used to watch as a kid that are now back thanks to Netflix!

I am throwin’ it back for my husband because after having our first son, he insisted on buying superheroes for him that he could play with when he was older and let me tell you those Superheroes did not leave his side. When he was older, my husband would put on shows like Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends and told him all about when he was a kid waking up Saturday mornings excited to watch this show which we owe to Netflix for having it on. Even shows like Scooby-Doo (which is a current favourite in our house) was one of my husbands old time favourites and my son truly loves that he is watching shows his dad loved to watch when he was a kid.

Scooby-Doo Netflix
