Disney Kids

So I watched tons of Disney movies as a kid, lived all the princess stuff, really a girly girl.. and now I’m just not sure about the messages in the movies, much less how the princess bodies look. For example, in Pocahontas it’s all about colonization.. which is seriously evil.. and then it’s subtly racist.. love the songs and the grandma willow tree just really wondering what my kid’s takeaway would be from these movies. I am interested in everyone’s opinion. All thoughts welcome 😁

I love everything Disney. And it doesn’t help much that I own a travel agency and frequently go there... but before you get concerned and I DO see where you are coming from, know that the message conveyed is often bigger than what the princess looks like. My pet peeve is actually the historical inaccuracy (I’m a history teacher too).

They are small, they don’t get much of everything we know now. You didn’t either when you were their age. It isn’t until your older that you realize what it truly is. But they’re not negative anyway. It’s Disney... better than them watching teen mom. 🤷🏻‍♀️ or the walking dead. Yes some parents actually allow their children to watch all that. I have a friend who lets his 3 year old daughter watch game of thrones 🤦🏻‍♀️

It’s tough because the older movies do have messages that we don’t necessarily agree with but help emphasize the good qualities of the movies and point out the bad things and use it as a learning tool... “this is how it was in that time, and that was a pretty bad way to think and behave. We can learn a lot from the mistakes of that time.”

What was your takeaway as a kid? I also watched all the Disney movies growing up and I feel like as a kid your pretty oblivious to all that stuff. But you could always just have a conversation with your kids once they're at that age.

Honestly I wouldn't worry about it I grew up with those movies and didn't think much of it and also most people watch those movies as kids and they're still good people.
