Meeting a Princess


Meeting a Princess

S meets Cinderella

I’m still not clear on what my feelings are about princesses and whether they are a bad thing to have in my daughter’s life. I guess I don’t want to deprive her of them but also make sure it’s not the end all or be all of her life. I don’t think there is anything wrong with princesses as long as she is exposed to all kinds of females with different roles.

Disney is very close to our home so I do take her there as much as I can since it is something fun for me to do with her. I loved Disneyland as a kid so I want my kids to have that fun too.

What are your views on the princess craze of some young girls?

  1. Our little girls deserve wonder and enchantment in their lives. My daughter loves princesses too, and my credo is to make sure I read her stories of princesses or other magical female characters that do something other than try to snag a prince for a husband – but how many stories like that can you name? It’s tough! But as our girls age, I think the key is keeping discussions alive about gender roles.

    FYI. I just found a book that might be on the more progressive side! “The Best of Girls to the Rescue” by Bruce Lansky.
