Helping Kids Tackle Life’s Challenges with a little help from Netflix #StreamTeam

Having a child in school I’m no stranger to some of the challenges a child can face at school and at home (there is no shortage of sibling rivalry here folks!). It’s almost summer and my daughters first year of school has brought her much joy, new friends, some tears and some friendship challenges and learning to stick to the rules along the way. I’m thankful that she’s handled it with grace and bravery and feel that she’s ready to take on kindergarten next year.

While you should of course be having conversations with your child often about the challenges that can occur at school and life in general it does help to have some good TV shows that they can watch to not only entertain them but continue to instill great life lessons on handling these inevitable moments in life.
