This April a lot of people were celebrating Sibling Day by posting selfies or old photos with siblings on social media sites. We didn’t really celebrate sibling day, but our whole month of April involved a lot of sibling time and appreciating siblings. We had a bit of a family emergency and spent about two weeks out of town visiting with family.
During that time spent a lot of time with my in-laws and their siblings and we saw how amazingly supportive they were toward each other. We saw how that close family bond can get you through even the hardest times.
We also spent a lot of time with my sister-in-law and her family and saw how the close bond we have with them is not just important to us, but to our kids too.
Of course, I also spent a lot of time away from home in hotel rooms or staying with family and breaking up disagreements between the three siblings I created. It helped to remember that they will (hopefully) have a very different relationship when they’re older, and in the meantime we have Netflix Streaming to help break up some of the sibling showdowns.
Each of the kids has their own favorite shows, but they also have shows they can enjoy together, like Animal Mechanicals, How to Train Your Dragon, Home, Inspector Gadget, and Mighty Med.
With Sibling Day in April, Netflix created a few lists of shows perfect for different sibling sets.
A Tale of Two Distant Ages
This list will appeal to your 5-year-old and your 15-year-old.
