As a child I loved Disney. I had the Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast soundtracks and knew all the words off by heart. I would play act being Pocahontas. My brother and I would quote parts of The Lion King to each other.
As an adult I looked back on those movies with a fondness, but if I watched them again I was a little unsettled by the violence in 'kids' movies.
And then one day a little girl I was looking after was drawing and began to sing a song from Snow White. "One day my prince will come".
I know that at this point, she doesn't really understand what she is saying. But I didn't like it.
I'm not saying Disney is bad, or that children shouldn't watch them. But I felt incredibly uncomfortable sitting with a child as she sang about wanting to find 'love anew', when 'wedding bells will [make] . . . my dreams come true'.
