So Much to Choose From #StreamTeam

The life of a mom with a teenager is very different from the life of a mom of young children.  The infamous “I’m bored.” statement is commonplace and occurs daily.  All day, actually.  I am not ashamed to say that I have used TV as a sitter in the past.  Today TV has become a God send.  You know the deal:  I’m busy, you’re busy, everyone is busy!  These days no one has the time or patience to properly parent.  Heck, even when you do find some time it’s often spent on the couch, in a vegetative state, sort of watching TV.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

Is it fair?  No.  Is it reality?  Sadly, often it is.  This is exactly why I love Netflix!  I’m not saying it’s a replacement for parenting…not at all!  What I am saying is that it is a great way to find a common ground.  A way to stay in the same room with your rebellious teenager and watch something together.  A way to open up communication or a facsimile.

With Halloween approaching, my teen won’t be going out trick-or-treating.  Instead, her and her friends will stay in and bake cookies.  They can gobble them up while watching Netflix.

This autumn, get your teens watching:


HATERS BACK OFF!
