But over the years, various parent groups, scholars and film critics have accused Disney for creating shallow, stereotypical princesses whose ultimate aim was to find her 'prince charming ' and live happily ever after.

If a country depends on the work of children to support the production of goods, the future generation won’t be as educated as they should’ve been.
