Dont idolize prince charming

Reading books is a great habit to develop in children but we need to be careful of the messages some of the classics like Cinderella and Snow White might be perpetuating in today’s age.

These stories often center around an innocent, good girl in an unfortunate situation that ultimately gets rescued by a handsome prince(classically an affluent, white male).They can lead one to believe that physical appearance is paramount and love at first sight without actually knowing a person is normal.

In a lot of such tales, girls are made to believe that they’ll be rewarded with marriage, wealth, status and a happily-ever-after life with a handsome prince only if they maintain their physical beauty and good behavior.

Young girls should read tales that inspire them to handle and take control of their own life instead of waiting for a Prince Charming.
