Get a Parenting Grade A on the First Day #StreamTeam

You know the feeling; it seems like summer just started and before you know it, you’re tucking your little ones in for the first day of school. But it’s not just the endless check list of shopping, planning and organizing that add-up to the back-to-school madness — it’s your own first day jitters. You really just want your kids to put their best foot forward, behave for their teachers, make friends, and learn something new. But, let’s be honest, sometimes that’s easier said than done.

After sitting down with your kids for a first day pep talk, let their favourite characters do the talking. You’d be surprised how many of their favourite shows and movies touch on important lessons that can’t be taught inside the classroom and that give them confidence to be their best selves. Check out these three new Netflix original series for kids this month!



Project Mc2

Premiering on Netflix Aug. 7, but you can get a first look here. Project Mc2 features four supercool fierce teen spies who show how girls can use science smarts and math problem-solving to save the world – and look cool doing it, without sacrificing their individuality. Total #SmartGirl inspo.



DinoTrux has more than meets the tire, er, eye – these prehistoric hybrid dinosaur-construction vehicles team-up to work together using their different skills to solve problems. Even the most uncommon of pairs, like Ty-Rux and Revvit, form friendships of a lifetime. The show premieres Aug. 14, only on Netflix.


Ever After High: Way Too Wonderland

Good? Evil? Your actions, behaviours and friends are your choice! The offspring of favourite fairytale characters in Ever After High: Way Too Wonderland (8/14) show kids that their stories are their own to write – this time at Wonderland High!

My girls aren’t school aged yet, but I remember how nervous and excited I always was for the first day back to school.  I am sure it can be a challenge to deal with the back to school jitters as September quickly approaches. Try looking to favourite TV and movie characters for inspiration! Below are some titles to get your kids back in the school spirit.
