When you discover a new favourite show or movie on Netflix, the last thing you want to do is watch it alone. With a home full of potential binge-mates, the perfect couch partner is just one persuasive conversation away from joining you.

Despite the excuses they might bring to the table, no one beats mom and dad when it comes to the power of (entertainment) persuasion.
When it comes to my family, it is usually my children who need a little persuasion. You know I love Paw Patrol and Peppa Pig. I really do. Sometimes though I like to make sure my kids get a little variety.
