Parenting Lessons From Green Eggs And Ham On Netflix

Green Eggs And Ham debuted on Netflix last week and we couldn’t wait to see it this weekend. The kids were the ones who pointed it out. As long-time Dr. Seuss fans, we were excited to give the new hit series a try.

With Michael Douglas as the main character, you can feel the grumpy personality in his voice.

Life Lessons From Green Eggs And Ham On Netflix

While we watched the two, Guy and Sam I Am, overcome unforeseen obstacles in the first season, it was interesting to note how their friendship begins to unravel.

Most mom friendships for introverts like myself always feel as though you need to put in more work than you’d like to. Oftentimes it feels as if you don’t need someone in your life.

Sometimes seeking help from others can be a blessing. Green Eggs And Ham on Netflix teaches you this and makes it a point to show how opening up to others can help you get through life a lot easier.

Green Eggs and Ham on Netflix has some life lessons for all. Tune in this month to find out what they are.

Focusing on your goals is another lesson you can learn from the Netflix Original Series. At times, being a parent can be overwhelming. However, if you focus on the essentials throughout the day, then you will be able to accomplish more.

The show also teaches you to ask questions, and never take anything for face value. Sometimes the things you swore were black and white are really tri-color.

While watching the show, we noticed something about Guy. Although he didn’t like Sam I Am sticking around, you notice he begins to care for the little fellow. Being compassionate about others’ emotions is important. You never know how your actions/words can impact them.

One of my favorite lessons from the story is how determined Sam I Am is to getting Guy to like the green eggs and ham. Throughout the story, he continues to search for ways to get Guy to try the dish.

As the story goes, Guy eventually gives green eggs and ham a taste and agrees that he would eat a plate of it anywhere.
