All opinions are mine alone. #Disney #VillainDescendants #CollectiveBiasDisney's Descendants movie released July 31, I made sure my girls and I were ready to watch! It was a fun change for my kids to see characters delighting in being mean and evil - every kid WANTS to be selfish and ignore the rules! So it's exciting to live vicariously through the wicked protagonists as they discover they have a choice in who they really want to be. And just like every child, the descendants of the storybook villains are constantly faced with opportunities to make a better choice.
My kids also got to struggle to comprehend a different parenting dynamic with the Villains, where the parents were still attentive and present, but controlling and selfish; parents who did not love their children unconditionally. These will be some interesting themes to discuss further and explore through play.
