There are a few shows that have a huge impact on a whole generation. Buffy the Vampire Slayer was one of those shows. The entire cast has found it impossible to get away from the series in some very good ways. Even the bad guys became beloved by fans.

If you’re looking for a series to watch with your children, Buffy is one of those that will stand out. While some of the elements may be a little too scary for younger children, this is something to watch with your tweens and teens. Depending on your younger children, it could be something for them, too.

You’ll want to watch it for more than just the storylines. Here’s a look at just what makes it so great, even now.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer will give your tweens confidence

The big thing about the series is showing that everyone is important when it comes to saving the world. While Buffy Summers was the lead character, she wouldn’t have succeeded in stopping multiple apocalypses without her friends.

As children get to the tween stage, they start to wonder where they fit in. They wonder how they can make an impact, and they can struggle with their confidence. We even see it with the characters on Bffy the Vampire Slayer. Just look at Willow’s growth from the start to the end. She’s an excellent character to show that it’s okay to be yourself, but it’s also okay to ask for help when needed.

One of the best characters to follow is Xander. He looks like the goof of the group; the one who is there for comedic relief. However, it was because of him Buffy survived the fight against The Master, and it was because of him that Willow didn’t destroy the world. He was the heart of the group that held it all together.

While there are many other reasons, such as relying on friends and proving that it takes a team to save the world, the confidence your tweens will gain in themselves is the reason to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer with them right now.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is available to stream on Hulu.
