Classic TV Shows & Movies to Watch As a Family

Motherhood and Children

Do you ever scroll through Netflix looking for something for your children to watch that’s not just completely mindless or sassy nonsense? In the spirit of summer and because I’ve gotten lots of questions about appropriate movies and TV shows for children, I’ve done some research and pulled together a list of classic TV and movie options available on Netflix, Amazon, and more.

P.S. Common Sense Media is a good resource to check for age-range recommendations and appropriateness.
