One of my family’s favorite movies is Tangled, made by the creative minds at Disney. We love Rapunzel. She’s funny, optimistic and even modest. She loves and obeys a woman who has held her captive for 18 years. Okay, true, she doesn’t realize exactly what she’s been missing, but still…what a girl, right? Too bad she’s computer generated. All the good ones are these days, I guess.
Rapunzel is amazing in other ways, too. Here’s a girl raised by a crazy, youth-seeking maniac who can:
Get herself up at 7 AM sharp each day
Read LOTS of books
Chart the stars
And, to top it off, she knows how style 70 feet of luxurious magic hair!
She does all of this trapped in a tower with an evil villain for a mother. Wow. Most of us homeschooling moms in the US get our kids out of doors at least once a month. We allow them to pursue their own interests, unhindered. And, if they wanted to see some floating lights, we’d probably take them without the 3 minute guilt-trip-song. Best of all, we didn’t steal our children, we gave birth to them ourselves.
I just want to thank the people at Disney for giving me this wonderful encouragement.
