My daughter has entered the machine. Although she is only four and a half, she had been snagged and chewed up by the insipid Disney marketing machine. She only wants to watch Disney shows. While shopping for school clothes, she could not understand why I said "not a chance" to the Hannah Montana silver pants and gold shrug.
Until recently I was able to shield her from the evils of High School Musical, unfortunately I gave in to her pleas and let her watch both of those evil shows. Now the new pleas for HSM crap has begun. I swear there must some hidden brainwashing messages in their shows.
I want it to end. I need to throw my little wooden shoes into the Disney machine. The problem is I don't know how. How can you destroy something so important to your child just because you disagree with it on a philosophical level.
I legitimately banned Pokemon and other uber-violent shows from our home. A move that embittered my son, but it was violent so I felt justified. There is no violence in Disney shows, they're just horrifically annoying and very, very loud.
I guess you just have to step back and let it pass
