How to prep for high school life with Degrassi: Next Class
Did you watch Degrassi when you were growing up? I totally remember watching it in my mom’s bedroom (which was more contained in case the characters were talking about something that I deemed embarrassing or a little too edgy). The show made me nervous, it was so raw and dealt with issues that seemed WAY more advanced than anything my little life had seen. Jimmy got shot for goodness sakes! Now as a parent, I see how Degrassi can actually be an amazing parenting tool. Netflix recently brought Degrassi: Next Class to the network and it’s pretty much like Cliff’s Notes (totally aged myself with that one) for teen life. Whether you choose to watch it with your kids or by yourself as sort of a primer for what high school life is truly like these days, Degrassi is here for us. Jimmy is also still here for us. We just call him Drake now.
