Celebrating Family in All Its Forms #FamilyDay #Ad #Streamteam @Netflix_CA

Celebrating Family on Family Day 2017

As a  Netflix Streamteam member I receive special perks for my participation. Opinions are all mine.

Families come in many shapes and sizes, and the dynamics within a family are often challenging and messy, as depicted in the shows and movies I've shared with you in this post. Seeing oneself reflected in movies and series that depict diversity in families is so important if we expect our kids to be accepting of themselves and of others. The nuclear family consisting of a married heterosexual couple with 2.5 children isn't the reality for a large part of the population. One type of family unit isn't better or worse, just different, and with these differences come unique experiences, relationship dynamics, laughter and challenges. Whether you're celebrating Family Day as an official holiday or not, in my opinion family in whatever shape it may be is something to be celebrated. 

Please Note: Although all of these are about families, and the relationships between family members, not all are family friendly.
