Parents, your New Year's Eve lifesaver is back again this year! Netflix is helping kids get to bed early on NYE by giving kids a countdown of their own! It's really a genius idea!

Your kids will never know that it's not midnight because Netflix makes it seem like it is midnight. You can play the countdowns from some of their favorite TV and movie characters anytime you want.

Then, when the kids are in bed you can crack open your champagne and watch the ball drop kid free! This probably won't work for me this year but I'm keeping it in my back pocket for when my little guy is older!

To be honest, I haven't been able to stay up until midnight in years, so this might be my NYE countdown this year.

At what age do you let your kids stay up until midnight?
