Beautiful Princess in Disney Movies Create Low Self-Eseem in Our Girls

Most children grow up watching Disney princess movies. Girls want to be extraordinary, beautiful, and similar to the princesses seen in these movies in terms of behavior. These movies teach them that they must be fashionable, beautiful and be rescued by a prince in order to be happy. However, these movies have been shown to have negative impacts on these young girls’ life, often resulting in low self-esteem, disobedience, overdependence, and an unrealistic expectation of male partners. As a result, young girls should not be encouraged to watch Disney princess movies because they idolize the characters, which are simply fictitious and just meant for entertainment, and these movies also cause disobedience, low self-esteem and lack of confidence.

Disney princess movies are inappropriate for young girls. People blame adult media for a child’s corruption, but they fail to see where it all started: Disney princess movies. Women should not see Disney princesses as their role model. They should accept themselves for who they are than comparing themselves to unrealistic Disney characters. If young girls continue to emulate Disney characters, it might affect their future. It is better to stop them at their early age. Therefore, they should not be encouraged to watch Disney princess movies for the betterment of their future and society.
