I don't know what the draw is for me, perhaps my love of history. But I do love all these period shows that Netflix is currently streaming. My summer nights have been filled with British and Irish accents.

Do you have a “5 more minute” negotiator on your hands, or is your little one slow as snails come bedtime?

TV Shows to Stream on Netflix this Summer

While my children are taking a break this summer and not attending summer school, I still want to inspire their learning throughout the summer months. We still school part-part-time three days a week for an hour or so. We do loads of summer reading programs and naturally I look for anything that helps me and my kids keep connecting.

My kids love to listen to any story about myself when I was a child. They will ask me to tell them the same story over and over. It cracks me up. It connects our childhoods; they have something in common with me. There’s something pretty awesome about connecting with my kids over something I loved when I was young.
