Sometimes it is hard to be 5 years old: There's a Netflix episode for that! #StreamTeam

I always tell my son to enjoy is childhood because it goes by quickly. At the same time, I know that it is hard to be 5 years old. He was surprised when I wasn't thrilled with his artwork that he drew on the wall.  He was scared when he used the toilet for a science experiment, filling it with rolls of toilet paper and seeing it overflow after he flushed. He sometimes thinks that it is outrageous when I tell him to share with friends. At the same time, I know that he is still learning the rules and working on social skills.   In today's post, I will share - There's a Netflix Episode for that! I'll share some shows that help us with parenting because they have positive messages that address topics that are sometimes frustrating for little ones.  

We have been watching Netflix shows that proactively teach our little one about rules, sharing, and general social behavior.  This is a great way to help him to learn while having fun. After all, watching a good show on Netflix is more fun than learning the hard way about many rules! 

Here are a few shows that we love for toddlers and elementary school age children
