So, you might have heard that a little something called the WINTER OLYMPICS is happening now in Sochi, Russia. As Team USA goes for gold, there’s no better time than now to teach your children about inspiration, teamwork and competition.
Common Sense Media had some great ways to share a few key lessons that you can teach your kids while tuning in. But the excitement doesn’t have to end with the closing ceremonies. Here’s a list of Netflix titles that will teach key Olympic lessons all year long.
