With what feels like endless rain, and colds going around, it’s time to settle in and watch some Netflix.

Do you ever feel like you’ve watched just about everything?!    With a 6, 9 and 12 year old it can be difficult to find a show that we can all enjoy, or at least that one won’t have anyone making excuses to leave the room.

Here are just a few of our favourites – keep in mind that some may be slightly inappropriate for younger audiences.  Also, we notice sometimes that some classics can be a little outdated – but it’s a great way to start conversations about the way people used to think wayyyy back in the 80s and 90s!

If you have a hard time figuring out whether something is appropriate for your family from the ratings system (PG, MA, R???) – this website – Common Sense Media – is an amazing resource!  It will tell you exactly what themes are approached and counts the number of curse words and details any violence or nudity.  Put it in your parenting toolbelt!
