In an interview with Parents magazine, Kristen Bell expresses some concerns about the lessons her daughters might be learning from a Disney classic.
Kristen Bell, the voice of Princess Anna in "Frozen," told Parents magazine that she loves reading to her daughters Lincoln, 5, and Delta, 3, when they are "snuggled up like meerkats."
But Bell said she is not 100% comfortable with the classic tales of Disney princesses.
In particular, the 38-year-old actress has some concerns that Snow White undermines what she teaches her daughters about the danger of strangers.
"Every time we close" Snow White "I look at my girls and ask them:" Do not you think it's strange that Snow White did not ask the old witch why she needed to eat the apple? That apple? I say: I'd never take food from a stranger, would you? And my kids are like, No! And I'm like , It's okay, I'm doing something right & # 39;
Kisses without consent
Bell also asks her daughters about the book "Snow White" when they talk about consent when it comes to, at best, the presumptuous behavior of Prince Charming.
"Do not you think it's strange that the prince kisses Snow White without his permission? Because you can not kiss someone if he's sleeping!"
Bell revealed in the interview with parents that he is working on his own book for children.
She praised a book that her family loves called "Grumpy Monkey", in which the characters try to give solutions, but in the end the monkey is allowed to be grumpy.
"I've had that feeling, andI want my girls to know that you can feel it.," she said. "Discover ways to recover when you're ready. I really like that message."
