I never had sibling issues with my daughter – after all, she is an only child! But with my own brother and sister…well that’s a different matter. My siblings are very close in age to each other, being only 14 months apart. But me, I’m 8 and 9 years younger than they are. You can imagine the issues that caused. It’s tough to have a tag along 5 year old little sister when you’re teenagers of 13 and 14.
One of the biggest bones of contention was the television. Finding something we could all agree on was one tough situation and the basis for many arguments. (Even now, when we get together, we can rarely agree on what to watch on TV!) Do you have that problem in your home too? Fortunately, Netflix has the solution. For the month of April, they have put together some Sibling Playlists that will help you find shows the whole family can enjoy together!
Fret no longer, this playlist caters to both your 5-year-old AND your 14-year-old, including:
“Meet in the Middle” Playlist
Deciding on a genre is hardest when it comes to watching together. From comedy to action, this playlist includes titles that have a little bit of everything for everyone.
STILL CAN’T DECIDE?
Since we know getting a collective answer can be easier said than done, Netflix has created an iconic fortune teller to help your
family decide what to watch next. Even better, you can create your own using the blank template here.
HOW TO PLAY:
- Pick a colour on the top four flaps and spell out the letters (e.g. B-L-U-E) while alternating a pinching and pulling motion with the teller to reveal a set of four numbers.
- Pick a number and move the fortune teller the corresponding number of times, revealing a second set of four numbers.
- Choose a genre and open the flap to reveal what’s up next on Netflix!
And if we’re going to get the family together to watch some awesome shows and movies on Netflix, then we’re going to need to feed them too!
Chicken and dumplings is something all the siblings in my family can agree on! Yum!
