Top 20 Netflix Summer Picks For Older Kids

Netflix Summer Picks For Older Kids

Netflix is jam-packed with great T.V. shows and movies, and sometimes it’s hard to know where to start, especially if you’re looking for shows appropriate for kids.  The great thing about Netflix is that there is so much to choose from for kids of every age, from preschoolers to high schoolers and everything in-between.  I have a kid in junior high school and one in high school, so I’ll tell you what my “older” kids are watching on Netflix this summer.  Maybe you’ll get some great ideas to add to your queue, so if nothing else you can have kids distracted long enough to pull dinner together.  Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything, *cough*. It’s just a random suggestion from the ether.

Anyway, I’ve lumped our top 20 most watched shows into categories of middle aged kids, and high school aged kids.  My 12-year-old is in the middle school kids category, and my 17-year-old is in the high school kids range.  As always, use your discretion as a parent to decide what’s appropriate for your own kids, regardless of age.

MIDDLE AGED KIDS

HIGH SCHOOL KIDS

 

I swear, I’d give anything to have had Netflix available during my long, hot summers as a teenager in Utah.  I could’ve watched my favorite shows, bingeing on one season after another while I canned whatever fruit was ripe on my parents trees at any given moment.  My summers were an endless, itchy, sweat-fest of canning whatever my parents grew on their one acre yard: peaches, apricots, cherries, plums, pears, and random spiky garden vegetables. It was the worst.

In fact, if I could go back in time, my Netflix summer picks would look something like this:

What are your kids watching right now? I’d love to hear about it.  And seriously, do tell, what would you have watched if you’d had the choice back in the day of Netflix summer picks?

Here are some other shows to watch on Netflix this summer:
