START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated Dec 2020)
As soon as you mention Newbie & family use, especially if you want WAF - you really should be running the Android TV OS - simply because it is a LOT easier to use with a simple Wireless Voice remote when interacting with Apps on a TV screen.

Android TV options:

- the big daddy - King of Android Boxes - the nVIDIA Shield - good for some light gaming as well. Even comes with a games controller.
- the gets the job done - cheap Xiaomi Mi Box - better just as a video streaming box, so long as you have good Home WiFi.

nVIDIA Shield from Amazon or the nVIDIA Online Store.
Mi Box from Walmart USA or from these Links
