Childhood is never complete without watching a Disney movie. It embodies the magical world that kids and kids at heart love. As parents, who once were mesmerized by one Disney movie or two, understand the effects these films have on our minds. They inspire, motivate, influence, and touch us in a way that they somehow affect our perspective on life. Behind adorable animations are values that we can learn.
Mom and dad may be busy most of the time at work or other tasks concerning the household, but they have to make sure that they still spend time with their kids. A movie night can be a great idea. It serves as a bonding moment for the family, and at the same time, it will surely be something that the kids enjoy.
Top 3 Classic Disney Movies Parents Can Watch With The Kids:
Pinocchio is a 1940 American animation which tells a story of a lifeless wooden puppet who was magically turned into a real boy by the Blue Fairy in response to his creator’s wish upon a star. The Blue Fairy then assigned Jiminy Cricket as his guardian and conscience. Then the rest of the story is about his journey towards becoming a real boy. Pinocchio teaches us that “Honesty is the best policy,” and it is a world-renowned belief that your nose would grow when you tell a lie.
“Remember, a boy who won’t be good might just as well be made of wood.”
―The Blue Fairy
- Peter Pan
Peter Pan is a 1953 American animated film which tells a story about a boy who never grows up. He was trying to retrieve his shadow when she met Wendy and her brothers. They all loved the stories about Pan which Wendy would always narrate. Peter invited them to go to Never Land, so they would never grow up just like him. The movie tells us how the adult world would make us lose our touch to what is truly essential in this world. Somehow, the story is deep as it describes how life ends the moment we grow up.
The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it. The reason birds can fly and we cannot is simply that they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.
― Peter Pan
- Alice In Wonderland
Alice In Wonderland is a classic American animated film which narrates the adventures of a young girl named Alice. In Wonderland, she met different characters of all varieties. The movie teaches us that it is only our mind that limits what we can grasp, that we are free to explore our curiosity as it is sometimes what leads us to the ultimate adventures of our lives. It dares us to take risks. That’s what life is all about, to embrace it with courage and bravery in our hearts.
“I try to believe in as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
These three classic American animated movies are timeless. They are relevant to every generation. It is better when kids watch these with parents so that they can explain further the morals of the story, as they are indeed deep, but are remarkably substantial.
