There’s lots of discussion about what Disney princess movies teach little girls, but has anyone thought about what they teach little boys?
Yes, yes they have.
This article talks about a study done on how Disney Princess movies affect young children, specifically, young boys. I don’t want to give spoilers but the affect these movies had on boys was exactly opposite of what I thought it would be.
Writers are told to read, read, read. But does what we read matter? According to this article it does. I’m not 100% sold on its conclusions but I will agree that reading ‘good’ writing is better than reading ‘bad’ writing, no matter the genre. Though why someone would purposefully read something they think is ‘bad’ is beyond me.
On a happy note. We’ve finally broke ground! In six or so months we’ll have a house again.
