I love almost everything about the fall, the brisk but not freezing winds, the beautiful leaves on the ground, comfy clothes, comfort food, Halloween…Cold and flu season tho, that’s one of my least favourite things about the fall!

When little ones are not feeling well and they stay at home from school to recover there is nothing like curling up on the couch with some blankets and watching a good movie to take their mind off the sniffles. When I am sick that’s all I want to do too!

Thankfully with Netflix we can stream and play our favourite movies at any time of the day. I remember growing up I didn’t have many options when I was sick and stayed home from school, daytime TV was pretty bad.

Netflix has a lot of family friendly comedies that are always great when trying to cheer a sick little one, after all laughter IS the best medicine, see some great suggestions below.

I love that I can totally watch all of these movies WITH my children and we can all enjoy them! Despicable Me and The Cat in The Hat are my son’s personal favourites and I just love Shrek, who doesn’t?!


What are your favourite family friendly movies that you find comforting and/or uplifting?
