With this said, each movie is not teaching girls how to be independent, strong, loving, and educated women. Most Disney princesses act as a “damsel in distress” which portrays them to be taken care of in order to survive. This is not true in feminist eyes, being able to take care of your self but also love and cherish someone is how a Disney princess should portray a girl. Having girls watch these movies is just showing them that you need a man to take care of you always which is not true a girl can take care of herself with the help of her parents and taking care of her school and social life. One of the lessons that children learn throughout watching these movies are bad people are always fat, old, and/or ugly.

Parents have a huge influence on their kids and even though it is good to have a parent educating you, it can get to a point when it is too much. “This is how you smile to someone you don't like very much; this is how you smile to someone you don't like at all; this is how you smile to someone you like completely” (Kincaid 1). Psychological speaking, it is unhealthy for the kid to have their parents telling them what to do every second.

My mom grew up getting into fights and being a troublemaker in her neighborhood, she was surprised to see that I refrained from getting into trouble or getting involved with drugs and alcohol at a young age. Just like young Marjane I rebelled, and everyone looked at me different for being who I was. However, they do not always encourage her rebellion, her mother forces her to pray, “If anyone ever asks you pray during the day, say you pray, you understand?” (75/6) in this case her mother wanted her like everyone else to keep from being killed or taken away.
