Nexflix has officially released that New Year’s will be happening at 9PM for kids, and some parents our not happy. (Details)
Celebrate the Most Famous 10 Seconds of the Year Whether It’s Midnight or Not with Special Kid-sized Countdowns Only On Netflix
Most of the comments I am seeing are negativity about ‘tricking’ your kids. Some even attack parents who embrace the 9PM New Year’s celebration saying ‘your kids should just go to bed when you tell them’.
For us, this early New Year’s is not at all about tricking my girls, or a lack of parenting. For us it all about allowing the our girls to participate in the celebration with us.
My girls don’t respond well to staying up late… and I can’t blame them. Their days are busy with making messes and learning new things. At the end of the day, they are more to happy to climb into bed. We have tried to stay up to midnight with them before. The night was filled with meltdowns and just unpleasantness. It doesn’t work well at all, and makes the whole experience not enjoyable for anyone.
That’s why my husband and I are excited about the 9PM New Years celebration this year! We are very excited to be able to celebrate with our girls, and just have a lot of fun as a family (hopefully without many meltdowns).
