Kids…Do They Need A Break Too?

A Day in the Life Family Kids Things We Love Travel

Us moms and dads know that when the kids go to bed it’s break time. Isn’t it the time we look forward to everyday? Our time to unwind from the long day and relax. Even if it is only for a short time.

Well, what about the kids? Do they deserve a break too? We love curling up in front of the TV to binge watch our favorite Netflix show, so is it fair to let our kids to the same? Between school, friends, sports, homework, and swim lessons (to name a few), kids too have a lot on their plates. Even during summer break they have long, hot days of playing outside at camp, so an episode or two of their favorite Netflix show can be the quick mental reset they need. My kids are LOVING Lego Ninjago. In fact, they have watched all 5 seasons at least 50 times!!


Do you let your kids unwind with Netflix after a busy day?

As a way to unwind, take your kids on a journey of exploration with a helping hand from Netflix.  Travel has proven to be a great way to open kids’ eyes to new and diverse people, places and things and with Netflix, you can introduce your little ones to the vast Arctic Plains with Frozen Planet or the depths of the jungles with Wild Ones. The options are endless when you travel with Netflix!

Make it fun by creating your own Netflix Passport

And then put it to work! Every time Netflix transports you to a new culture or era, draw your own stamp to keep track of what you watched. And get creative! Maybe you get a T-Rex “stamp” for The Good Dinosaur, or a penguin for Happy Feet.


Now pack your bags, grab your Netflix Passports and take your kids on the ultimate adventure. Where will you go first?

New on Netflix for June/July:

For the last 7+ years I have immersed myself in the "mom life". My blog, appropriately named Me, Myself and Kids is my life; the challenges, the laughter, and the tears. But I also offer my own version of motherly advice. In doing so, I’ve designating myself as an MD or “Mom Doc”. Not because I know it all. Don’t get me wrong. It’s an open perspective; my learnings shared so you can take the good, bad and ugly and adapt it to your own family life. So please join me as I share all of the crazy and overwhelming thoughts and experiences of the mom life with Me, Myself and Kids.

    Yes of course kids need a break, too! They work hard at school & deserve to unwind just like us. I just got a TV & Netflix in my daughter’s room so she can watch her favorite shows like Riverdale after she is done any homework. She just chills out & gets to relax like her mom!
