I’m a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam, which means I’m a Netflix ambassador and get to share all of my binge watching experiences and television obsessions with you, so you can binge watch, too. Check out my recommendations for Netflix shows for pre-schoolers below!
This morning, as I was switching over laundry from the washer to the dryer, I overheard a conversation between my four-year-old daughter and my husband.
Claire: I want THREE dogs, Daddy.
Daddy: hahahahahahaha. NO.
Claire: Please! Why not?
Daddy: Because we have enough dog poop to clean up as it is with two dogs. We’re not getting a third dog.
Claire: It can just stay in my room.
Mmmhmmm. Sure it can. Until it eats her toys or chews a hole through a blanket (not that my darling dogs would ever do such a thing, oh no!).
While the kids are pretty good about feeding the dogs for me (when I remind them) and letting them out each day (the price they pay for being early risers!), they aren’t really what I would call responsible pet owners, you know what I mean?
We talk about responsibility, and what it means, but I think it’s going to take awhile to sink in. I mean, I’m 38 years old and I sometimes wonder how I function on this planet, so…it’s safe to say knowing about being responsible and actually being responsible are two different things. Ha.
I could talk all day long about what it means to be a responsibly pet owner. Sometimes, I feel like I do.
Or, I could turn on Veggie Tales (thank you, Netflix) and let them learn about why we don’t have three puppies through the lessons of talking squash and asparagus!
I don’t ever expect or want my kid to learn important life lessons from television. But I’m also totally okay with humanized cauliflower learning the hard way that puppies take a lot of work and passing that lesson along to my kids.
Other life lessons you can discuss with your kids over Netflix: Help pre-schoolers cope with sibling rivalry with the help of The Hive and let Puffin Rock teach kids about why we need to follow the rules!
