Did you celebrate Siblings Day this month? When you have brothers and/or sisters, the bond between you is unique and special as you have shared experiences no one else understands. It’s not always sunshine and roses, though, and disagreements are bound to happen. Even deciding that shows on Netflix to watch together can be frustrating. What one sibling likes, another can’t stand — and visa versa.
Having sisters that are 8, 10, and 12 years older than I am, I know full well how different our taste in entertainment can be. Due to our age difference and being completely outnumbered, I either had to endure what my sisters wanted to watch or enjoy my cartoons alone when they weren’t at home. My daughter, being an only child, never had to deal with that. Frans and I pretty much watch what she wants to see… that is until we can’t take any more shrilly voices, corny lines, or talking animals (that especially irks Frans 😛 ).

- How to Train Your Dragon 2
- LEGO Friends: The Power of Friendship

There are several new Netflix Original series to check out too.

What movies or TV shows on Netflix do your kids enjoy watching together?
I received a year subscription of Netflix and a device to stream the content as part of the Netflix Stream Team. All opinions are my own.
