I really enjoy watching Bluey with my kids, and it deserves its reputation as a beloved show. But oh my, does it ever set a really high bar for being an actively engaged parent. Bandit and Chili get tired sometimes as parents, but nothing bad ever happens to them. Life doesn’t ever really kick that family, and that’s just fine, because it’s still primarily a show for kids. When you’re a kid you are mostly oblivious to the hard things in life.

I think Bluey is great because it shows how to really play with your kids. But it’s okay to just want to take a break sometimes and do your own thing, or just take a nap.
