This post was written by me as a member of the Netflix Stream team, for which I receive a complimentary Netflix subscription.
Growing up, my sister and I were always very close. We are just under 3 years apart, and we shared a room, so we had no choice but to be 🙂
A lot of sisters grow apart once they hit high school, but my sister and I did not even though we chose different paths in high school. I focused heavily on my grades, and not so much on my social life. My sister focused less on grades, and more on having a social life. Regardless, we still hung out together all the time.
Today, we don't live in the same town, but I still love my sister very much and try to stay in touch with her even though it can be challenging because we both have our own lives.
Knowing how close my sister and I were growing up gives me hope that my daughters will stay close throughout the years. They are only 21 months apart and it makes me smile every day when I hear them tell each other, “I love you,” and give each other big hugs. They have always adored each other, even when Kaylee was just a baby.
Sisters are like built in best friends. They are each other's first experience learning what friendship is all about. It's so important to teach them the lessons they'll need to make good friendships as they grow.
Netflix has a selection of TV shows and movies that can help reinforce those lessons.
