Bad Kids Documentray – The Power Of One #StreamTeam

I love Netflix. So many shows that everyone in the family can find something. It has been awhile since I have watched a documentary as half the time I want light and easy shows to watch. A co-worker had told me about Bad Kids so I figured I would check it out. In the documentary you see teachers at a Mojave Desert High School called Black Rock working with at-rick students. These students carry the weight of the world on their shoulders. You see the pain and suffering in their eyes and you  ...

Netflix – Helping Me Connect With My Son

I have spent many moments of my life trying to get my kids to watch shows I enjoyed growing up. Sometimes they will humor me, others they look at me like I am crazy. I always had visions that I would spend Saturday mornings, perched in front of the TV with my boys sharing in my favourite cartoons. Then there was reality and they had better things to watch. You may not always understand your teen or tween. In fact, 70% of parents worldwide wish they had more to talk about with them. A recent  ...

Strong Women Role Models Helping My Boys Grow #StreamTeam

You all know I am a boy mom. That means my house is all boys, except for myself and the snake. Being dominated by males I believe it is VERY important to also show them strong women role models and what it could look like. Did you know that studies have shown that gender stereotypes have an impact on girls at a young age? That role models from the entertainment they choose can have a lasting effect? Crazy right? I know it goes the same way for boys also. But rest assured, Netflix is home to  ...

2017 – Filled with Love, Light and Netflix #StreamTeam

Can you believe we are always half way through January? Hubby and I were just talking about what we were hoping for in 2017, and what things drove us nuts in 2016. The one thing we really wanted to change was screen time. Both boys want to be watching YouTube videos and playing games. Drives me nuts, I mean they are little boys why are they not watching little boy shows? Growing up I loved those sappy love stories that always had a happy ending. Did you?  Now a days kids are gravitating  ...

Dear Tiffany – A Letter To The Younger Me

This month my Netflix challenge was to write a letter to my younger self. I thought it would be a lot easier but if we re honest it was hard! Dear Tiffany, I want you to enjoy every minute as a carefree teen. Enjoy the moments that make you want to give up. When you have those moments make sure you take a breather as you often get yourself worked up and then you just walk away. Embrace the challenges and know that with each one it helps mold you into the person you will be come. You were an  ...

The Halloween Candy Sorting Ritual with Netflix

After the goblins, jesters and dinosaurs go to bed this Mama “organizes” the Halloween candy. What this really means is I sort the candy so later I can find my favourites easier. All the crap like those Halloween Kisses get tossed and rockets donated to my work place. Do you know what I also love while doing the candy thing? Watching some favourite shows on Netflix with hubby! Don’t get spooked into a mediocre Halloween – there’s lots in store for your family on Netflix!  ...
