Cape Town – The school holidays kick off on Friday and parents will have their hands full with the young crowd.

And while we are all for fresh air and healthy living, life (I really need to make dinner but my son keeps nagging at my feet), and the weather (I literally can’t see through the window because of all the rain), do creep up on all of us at some point.

What to do if this happens? Well, there’s nothing like snuggling up in front of the TV with your little one and his favourite TV show or movie. And if you know the names of all the new shows that are currently available to stream on Showmax, you will totes up your parent cred with your kids.
