20 Netflix shows you can binge-watch with the family
The kids are home, you’re being asked to practice “social distancing” and your family might be on the brink of a very legit case of cabin fever.
While a lot of us associate Netflix with our favorite juicy dramas and comedies, often they’re not something the little ones should be viewing. But, there are some great shows you can binge-watch as a family and it can avoid having to watch “Baby Shark” or “Paw Patrol” for the 357th time in a row.
Note: These are shows with a rating of TV-14 or below. Everyone’s family is different, so you’ll want to research the show before watching it to make sure it’s right for your family. These shows are currently available on UK, Italy and Germany Netflix lineups unless otherwise noted.
