The kids just hit summer vacation around these parts and we're already hearing it: "Dad, I'm bored. Can I play on the Wii? I didn't hit my sister! Can I play on your iPad?" Luckily, some of the big guys in online media are looking out for you with a few fun techie diversions for kids and families.
First, Netflix has created a special site for families that shows films that are fun for the kids and their parents.
"With the Netflix Families page, we’ve used our proprietary algorithm to create lists we think families will love," said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix. "In the 'Are We There Yet?' list we’ve picked TV shows and movies ideal for watching on your tablet in the airport, and the 'TV for Curious Kids' lists have shows that will help keep kids' minds active during the summer months."
