Netflix #StreamTeamAlert Sept 2014: TGIF Pizza and a Movie

Now that school's back in session, many families are feeling the chaos and busyness that the new school year brings.  The all too familiar routine of homework, sports practice, and other after-school activities makes it hard for families to fit in quality time together.  Why limit family time to just Friday nights though? It's essential to promote family bonding time and make memories together. Netflix knows that family is the biggest priority in life.

Netflix's focus for September is family traditions.  It's crucial to create a new family tradition this school year.  Whether you stick to Friday night pizza and a movie, or bring everyone together for Tuesday night TV time, it's easy to create a weekly night of fun.  I don't remember my family having a weekly tradition that sticks out in my mind.  Since I'm an only child, I didn't have to compete for my parents' attention though.  Now that I'm having a baby in just three short months, I've been thinking about creating family traditions once she's old enough.  I'm thinking about incorporating some Fall fun yearly once it gets closer to October.  I'd love to do Fall crafts with my daughter or decorate the house with some festive themed decorations years from now. I hope she'll like that!

If you feel like you have no time to actively schedule a true activity with your family, don't worry that's not necessary.  Just gathering everyone together for a quick 20 minute chat around the kitchen table or a fast board game is enough.  Having everyone talk about their day will surely create lasting memories and connections.
