3 Movies Every Parent Should Watch With Their Children

funny-kids-moviesWe all love watching movies. I don’t think my weekends would start off right if I do not get to watch a nice movie right after breakfast. These 90+ minute sessions can teach everyone so much, especially the children.

Here are three movies that each parent should take the time to watch along with their children to encourage some quality family time:

1. The Pursuit of Happyness

There are certain movies that you are in a league of their own – you watch them all the time and they still are as interesting as they were when you first watched them. And then there is that one movie you don’t want others to know of.

It’s the best movie of all time. The absolute best. You fear watching it too many times is going to reduce your interest; so you just watch it once in a while. It’s in your view, the most fruitful movie that you have ever watched.

Pursuit of Happyness is that movie for me. Even though I don’t like to tell a lot of people about it, I don’t mind you guys knowing because the children will get to learn. A lot! It revolves around a father and son falling prey to financial hardships.

The movie is about how a little ray of hope in life can overcome mountains of troubles. How a smile from your child is all that you need to keep going. It also teaches the parents all our children need is love. If you haven’t watched it yet, I suggest you get a copy today. You won’t regret it, trust me.

2. Cinderella Man

I wasn’t really going to watch this one, if it weren’t for my siblings forcing me. Even though it starts off slow, there are many moments that bring a parent and the children so much closer. James Braddock, a washed-up boxer tries his luck for the last time putting his life on the line to become a champion. This movie teaches how humble beginnings and determination play a great role in making a family successful.

I can assure you, during the last fight, we all were on our toes chanting for James Braddock. It was a motivational movie weekend when we watched Cinderella Man.

3. Wadjda

Wadjda is the first movie directed by a female Saudi. The movie centers around how a little child, Wadjda, wishes to live her life the way she wants to. Wadjda finds a green bicycle and wishes to buy it to compete against her best friend. Knowing that she won’t be getting the money, she signs up for a Quran reciting competition in her school.

The story goes on to teach how children don’t just have the power to dream, but also turn them into reality. Muslim girls and women have long been forced to surrender to the men of the family, but Wadjda is no such girl. She overcomes all hurdles to straddle that very green bicycle and ride it off to a fine ending. A must watch, I tell you.

Let us know which movies you find the most fruitful as a parent. Do share your experiences with us watching these movies with your children. Tweet to us at @Lettucebeekids.

#LBKExhibition14 – it’s all about laughter and fun!

I met the LBK team the very first time at one of these meetups regarding our next annual exhibition. There is no way I could have missed it. I was already looking forward to doing my bit and helping the team turn this annual event into a huge success.

Exhibitions like these are hard to find, really. I am overwhelmed by all of the memories that I have collected. And I’m not the only one; Afsheen, another fellow here, says:

“#LBKExhibition14 was a mix of reliving old memories and making new ones. Working together with the team and interacting with the kids – it all comes in an inevitable package of fun, laughter and empathy.”

What was the exhibition all about?

Laughter and fun. However, #LBKExhibition14 was about lots of other things as well. This epic two-day gathering introduced new products to our catalog. We presented our new Toska line of products, which are made from fully recycled materials.

The team also introduced the Sammaan Collection, designed by Sarah Adeel, the founder herself. Not to forget; the Lettucebee Sport football, that also became one of our best sellers!

All of us fellows got to get along and make new friends, share more stories and become a more meaningful part of the Lettucebee Kids family.

Apart from having fun, we had a genuine cause to work for. At the end of the day, we knew this cause was all that mattered. We were there to re-integrate children back into the society. #LBKExhibition14 proved to be a platform that brought street kids and the rest of the kids together. And this was truly a magnificent sight to watch.

How well did we do?

The event was a success and we can’t thank all of you enough for being a part of it. Everyone who decided to take part deserves a round of applause. I think we can only make a difference if we stand together. And that’s what #LBKExhibition14 promoted; togetherness.

All the fellows played a pivotal role, in my view. It could not have been possible if either one of them were absent. We did well enough to ensure that we come back with an even bigger #LBKExhibition15 announcement. Buckle up, everybody, for it’s about to be a memorable ride!

What do the rest of the fellows have to say?

Here are some really nice words said by our fellows. The founder herself, Sarah Adeel, took the time to describe how important the fellows have been in making #LBKExhibition14 possible. She said:

“Everything that LBK is today and everything it will ever be is because of our devoted fellows…”
“This little GRP [Group of Remarkable People] is the backbone of LBK.”

 Zara Farooq, another LBK-ian, explained her experience in the following words:

Lettuccebee Kids did it again; touching hearts with thoughtful products. #LBKExhibition14 made me realize how much we have grown as a team and how much this small organization has developed into. My heart was filled with joy to see the turnout of people.”

Saad Zafar used the choicest of words to express himself. He said:

“#LBKExhibition14 was a mix of surprise responses, uncompromised team efforts and making memories out of amazing experiences. In a nutshell, these two days are among the best days of my life!”

Our cashier at #LBKExhibition14, and also one of our youngest fellows; Zara Shafiq had lots to say:

“I think for something as amazing as this, two days weren’t enough. This was our second exhibition and everything about it was twice as better; the children were involved, their mothers participated and we had the chance to spend memorable time together.”

We’ll be back again next year – with double the fun!

Lettucebee Kids is all about continuation. We can’t stop this wonderful joyride here. If you did not get a chance to be a part of #LBKExhibition14, our next exhibition is soon to welcome you all with twice as much fun, laughter and empathy.

For now, visit the gallery and order any products which you may like by emailing us at order@lettucebeekids.org.
