As the mother to four small children I feel like I constantly have to find a way to keep my kids entertained. This is especially hard when I need to get some work done or when we are out and about.
Sometimes I just need a few minutes to myself so I can get my teeth brushed, you know?
A few months ago we subscribed to Netflix, and I am so glad I did. My six, five, and four year old all know how to get to Netflix via our Blu-ray player. So when I need a moment, I have them all sit on the couch and pick something out from Netfilx’s dedicated kids section. The kids’ section is great because it has a bunch of family-friendly shows and movies that are appropriate for ages 2-12. All the content is selected with the help from Common Sense Media to provide ratings, reviews and information so I can easily make choices for the kids.
If I let Irelyn, Chloe and Grayson each pick one show to watch that gives me about an hour and a half to work on homework or… dare I say… the laundry. Irelyn and Chloe love to watch My Little Pony, and Grayson prefers Cars Toons: Mater’s Tall Tales. When Flynn is sitting in his swing they like to choose shows for him to “watch” and Sesame Street is their go-to in those moments.
//Thumbs up for anything that makes mom’s job easier and the kids happy.
Netflix has not only helped save my sanity at home, but it as rescued me when out and about too. Streaming is so easy and you can watch your favorite TV shows and movies anywhere, and anytime, you want. We have the Netfilx app on our iPhones, and during long waits at the doctor’s office, highway traffic, and those times where I have to feed Flynn in the car before going into a store, we can put on Powerpuff Girls to keep the kids entertained. Yes, even Grayson enjoys watching Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles take on Mojo Jojo – that’s what happens when you think your older sisters are the best.
Netflix has helped me keep the peace in moments where I would have otherwise lost my sanity. And anything that keeps a war from breaking out in my house is a win in my book.
What are you watching on TV with your family? Netflix has family favorites from Disney, Disney Jr., Hasbro, Cartoon Network and Dreamworks that are available to stream anytime, anywhere.
And streaming is easier than you think! Download the free app on your iPad, click on the Netflix app on any gaming device, go to the website on your computer – and you’re in business. Check it out here!
