The Real Moral of the Story For Disney Tales

Updated on November 7, 2014

If you are like most parents, you have read your child(ren) a Disney book before they went to bed. Overall, they are pretty good tales, maybe a little minsogynst, but no more than for the times they were written. For Disney's credit, they are stepping up their independent and self-actualized female characters. Yet, have you ever wondered what some real life lessons would be for the Disney tales we grew up on are?

Disclaimer: I am not against Disney or their princess tales, this is just a playful piece on some of the more famous tales. Also, I am not against men, I am just for strong women.

I wish Officer Friendly could come to her school and tell her not to eat an apple that a strange old women gives you. Don't do it! The seven male roommates is a little questionable, no pun intended, but they saved the day, so good on them.

I absolutely loved Ariel growing up. I am a natural redhead so I always thought she was such an awesome role model, and in some ways she is. However, this movie does show some disturbing scenes. First, I wish I could shake Ariel not to sell her soul just so she could have feet and not scales to get her prince to like her. Ariel falls for the first cute guy she sees, and she marries him when she is 16! For full disclosure, I married at 17, I am being a little bit of a hypocrite.

When I was 4 or 5, I had this fake purse I carried everywhere, and I always kept a fork in it so I could brush my hair. I used to think it made me like a Princess. Not hating on that scene, I just look back at it with humor.

Poor Cinderella, too bad they didn't have child protective services back in the day. Evil old step-mom would be doing some serious time, and she would owe Cinderella some serious unpaid income and overtime.

Too bad she couldn't hop online and do a back ground check on Prince Ali, I mean Aladdin. Also, be weary of any guy whose best friend is a monkey and they claim to have a genie in their lamp.

I absolutely love Princess Tiana. However, I would be cautious that the kids don't think that it should be okay to out your job and career on hold for a guy.

I do absolutely love Belle, because she is beautiful and smart. She wore clean but respectable clothes, and was always reading a book. However, be careful not to develop Stockholm Syndrome when you are being kidnaped. Also, be careful not to date a dude who says you can go to a certain part of their home, ever, they likely have dead bodies back there.

      No girls in our family. Don't even know who some of the princesses are, but suspect I will discover their identities soon. We have a granddaughter. Fun article.
