6 Lessons from Frozen to Teach Your Children
It’s amazing how after every movie release (no matter the year), Disney still manages to capture the eyes and heart of every child and adult alike. From the iconic and classic releases like Snow White and Cinderella, to a modern day phenomena like Frozen, there are countless amounts of lessons adults and our children can learn from.
In addition to singing along our (beautiful) renditions of Let It Go, and dressing like Elsa and Anna for Halloween, we can also help cultivate and teach our children important and valuable lessons from Frozen. Read on as we discuss six of our favorite life lessons.
It’s OK to be Different
Whether you talk to paintings on the wall like Anna, or have the superpower to turn anything into ice like Elsa, we all have qualities that make us unique and sometimes different—but that’s OK! One of the most important life lessons from Frozen is to acknowledge your differences and accept them. No one is perfect and everyone has traits or attributes that make them special, so it’s important to remember not to hide the beautiful qualities that make you who you are.
We All Don’t ‘Wake Up Like This’
Most of us are used to seeing our favorite Disney princess’ all glitz-and-glam, with their hair flawlessly in place and their outfits ironed and elegant—but one of our favorite scenes in Frozen is when we see Anna waking up before Coronation Day. Her hair is a big poofy mess and she had just drooled all over her face. This demonstrates that we’re all human and don’t wake up as perfectly, put-together individuals. It takes time and work for everyone, even for a Disney princess!
Never Be Embarrassed To Be Quirky
Anna teaches us one of the most valuable lessons from Frozen: never get rid of your quirkiness or zest for life. Although Anna went through difficult times, like losing her parents and having a difficult relationship with her sister, she never lost her spunk and ability to be quirky. She believed whole heartily in love, was never afraid to be on the dance floor, and maybe could be a little awkward whenever she was flirting (but hey, isn’t that all of us). She always embraced who she was, and never apologized for being authentically herself.
Sometimes We Have To ‘Let It Go’
As our beloved song goes, there’s a time and a place where we have to let things go. Whether we’ve had a bad day, have just fought with a close friend or didn’t get something we wanted, we have to look ahead. Although it may be painful, or we may feel sad, there’s always light at the end of the tunnel and situations get better with time. We just have to move past them.
Get To Know Someone Before You… Marry Them or Leave Them Your Kingdom
Trust is an important quality we bestow onto people in hopes they have our best interest in mind. That being said one of the lessons from Frozen we should take into consideration is not to trust everyone. After just a day, Anna had decided that Hans was her prince charming and love of her life. While we all want to believe in love at first sight, it’s important to build relationships and trust with people around us before letting them into our lives. Because of Anna’s impulsive decisions to trust Prince Hans with both her heart and responsibilities, not only was she in jeopardy, but she put her kingdom and family at risk, too.
Sometimes We All Have to Have a Little Fun
Just like opening up the gates to Erendale for the Coronation party, we all have to let in a little fun and festivities into our lives every once in a while. To experience fun like Anna and Elsa, why not see them in person by taking a trip with you and your family to Disney?
