Top 10 TV Shows You and Your Tween Will Love
Every family is different - screen time rules are different in every house, along with how screens are used (gaming, youtube, shows, chat, endless list here). In my house the preference is video content, specifically TV shows.
As a recovering TV addict (*full disclosure, I'm not actually recovering and am in full-on binge mode), I'm always on the hunt for tween shows that are well-written with talented actors and a relatable storyline. I was raised on an excess of television with really no limits. This includes watching my mom's cheesy day and night time soap operas. There was violence galore, inappropriate sexual inuendo (or just in-your-face sexual commentary including workplace harassment and any other female harassment you can imagine). Drama, bad writing, bad acting, you name it. That was the TV I knew and loved.
That is, until our society evolved and demanded better content. Luckily for our kids, there's an abundance of quality shows out there on every imaginable platform from cable (though who has this anymore??), Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, and iTunes. There's almost TOO much to choose from these days. So without further ado, here's my list of ten shows that are fantastic, bingeable TV for your tween (as vetted by my kids). You may even enjoy find yourself watching/napping next to them on the couch. No judgement.
Let me know what you think! And please keep me posted if I'm missing your favorite. I have a running list of good shows in case of emergencies (such as when I need a nap or to call a girlfriend to vent). Happy watching!
