Engaging Young People with Stranger Things

Posted on: 10/24/17 6:29 AM | by Jonathan McKee

Young people love them some Netflix… and this week they’re especially buzzing about Stranger Things, because Season 2 will be premiering this Friday… and everybody’s talking about it!

That means literally millions of people won’t be going outdoors this weekend, because they will be at home binge-watching the entire season in one sitting! That also means that many are re-binging on Season One again this week to prep for the big premiere.

Did you know that we have free discussion starters for EVERY episode of Stranger Things on our TheSource4Parents.com Netflix discussions page? (Did you even know we had a free Netflix Discussions page?) And next week we’ll be launching discussion questions for Season Two, one week at a time.

Did you know we wrote discussion questions for every single episode of The Walking Dead so far? (Yes… going on 8 Seasons)

Don’t get me wrong. I’m a big believer in just turning screens off at times (our family always had “no tech at the table” and “no-tech Tuesdays”… more on that HERE). But sometimes it’s fun to engage in entertainment together.

Give it a try. Instead of telling your kids to turn off their screens… sit down next to them and ask, “Whatcha watching? Can I join you?”

Have you used Netflix Binging to connect with your kids? Maybe this weekend is a good time to start.
