Netflix Stream Team Back to School With Kindness #StreamTeam
Here at ChiIL Mama we're half way through our final week of summer vacation before school starts after Labor Day. It's been a sedentary week, since my 11 year old is down with the stomach flu and my 13 year old is recovering from ingrown toe nail surgery to permanently remove both sides of one of his big toe nails. Thank goodness for Netflix and great books!! Our kids know we're all about kindness and anti-bullying. And as we prep for back to school once again, we know learning life lessons like making friends, learning social skills and learning peaceful conflict resolution can be as important as reading, writing and 'rithmatic. Need a little family refresher on treating others well, that's entertaining and fun, instead of heavy handed? Netflix has you covered.
Disclosure: ChiIL Mama is a proud member of the Netflix Stream Team. We've been compensated for sharing monthly posts with our readers. As always, all opinions are our own.
Kindness is magic.
Taking a cue from Derek – star of the Netflix original series – this month we’re focusing on kindness. Derek's mantra of acceptance, no matter age or ability, inspired our list of titles which are a great resource to remind your kids about how to see the good in everyone. Because in the end, teaching the values of kindness and acceptance are just as important as any academic learnings.
In our family, one of our all time favorite magic and kindness movies is Harriet the Spy. We highly recommend it and you can easily stream it on Netflix on your TV, computer or portable devices!
ChiIL Mama's thrilled to partner up with Netflix and the Stream Team once again this month and to share their list of titles that model kindness & respect to stream on Netflix. In addition to those below, Derek is a great way to foster a conversation about acceptance with your teens – from the creative mind of Ricky Gervais, a comedy genius with fans of all ages, this mockumentary style comedy-drama makes tough discussions more approachable.
