Share a Show to Help Them Open Up and Get Closer To Your Tween or Teen

by Bill Sweeney

Being a teenager or even a tween today is no easy feat, but neither trying to understand them. Believe me, it gets harder and harder for us to connect with Natalie. She’s growing up so fast, and it seems to get faster and faster with each passing day. I mean, what is happening to my little girl?!?!?!

While there are a myriad of ways for parents to try and connect with teens (I still have a year to go for that!!), according to a recent study by Netflix 83% of parents have watched a show their teen has seen to feel closer to them. The biggest surprise? 74% of teens are willing to open up and talk to their parents about the shows they watch. With entertainment as a common ground, parents and teens can bridge the conversation gap and tackle tough topics, whether you have a 12 year old or a 19 year old!!

One show that can’t seem come soon enough for us is Anne—Netflix’s new adaption of the beloved book Anne of Green Gables! The first full-length trailer shows us how the show may play out. Anne is very smart, spunky, and strong, but she’s up against it all in her adopted new town. It’s pretty much like Middle School for Natalie, so she is all in!!! I think this will be awesome, showing her how she can deal with any situation, as tough or impossible as it may seem. May 12 can’t come soon enough. Help me!!

Check out the trailer right here

Watching television and movies together is a great way to bond with the kids. We have movie nights all the time, and it’s so much fun.

Once you finally get your show picked out, movie and TV nights are great for family bonding. <3

I have learned through the years that sharing the TV moments with my son has brought us closer. I love introducing him to shows in Netflix

I loved the book Anne of Green Gables so much, my daughter started reading it and fell in love with it as well. This would be a fun show to watch with her.

I am few years away to have teens at home and I am kind of dreading it but this is a great suggestion. I hope that I could handle my teens when it’s here lol.

Your teen wants to be his or her best self. Our job as parents is to support our teens in doing that.

There are a lot of great show for tweens on Netflix. I think all tweens and teens should watch 13 Reasons WHy.

I’ve watched all of the episodes of the Anne series so far on CBC, such a good show! I grew up watching the other adaptations, so it’s such a treat!

It is important to monitor what your children are watching. I will need to watch the Anne series – it does look good!
