Streaming Services: So Many Choices So Many Pitfalls
There are so many movies and series on the streaming services today. What's a parent to do? How can a parent be aware and wary of what their kids might be watching on Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, Prime TV, and so on. Many of these programs are very suitable for either kids or youth depending on their content but some are definitely not suitable. We are able on this website to review the latest movies in theaters and recommend them or not, but it is impossible to keep up with everything that is available on the streaming services. So how is a parent to know? We recommend that parents stay in touch with what's new on the streaming services through by subscribing at no cost to the following two web pages:
Unplugged Online Has reviews of movies and programs on the streaming services from a Christian point of view. This site also reviews video games.
The Chair (NCR Culture) This series currently on Netflix is a artful presentation of the struggles that female women of color experience as faculty members on college campuses.Many of us might think that these women have made it... finally a professor at a liberal college. Not so says the cshow and the reviewer who found it surprisingly emotional. This show would be one to watch with your teenage girl who is looking forward to work as a college professor or in the corporate world.
Squid Game (Common Sense Media) This series somehow has become a rage among many young people across the country. Its country of origin is Korea. It might remind people of The Hunger Games in a way but it is much more violent. It is very intriguing and fast paced but parents beware. It is certainly not recommended for anyone younger than 16.
