    Bluey is not a kids show

    Bluey is not a kids show

    Click bait title I know, but stick around for my explanation. Bluey may be a kids show, but I also believe it is a parents show. A show to teach parents how to play and respond effectively to their children.
    It's been a while since I uploaded but I do plan on trying to make this more of a usual thing. I'm going to try some different formats and see what works.
