A conversation between Ladybug (now 3.5) and me while playing pretend:
Ladybug: You be the princess.
Me: Okay. What do princesses do?
Ladybug: They dance with the prince.
Me: Bummer. I wanted to save the day.
Ladybug: Rescue Man saves the day, but you can help him if you want.
What happened since Halloween (when fairies saved the day) to change her perception of what women can do?
I just put Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munch on hold at the library. Best princess book I can think of. Books are how I handle issues like this. How do you address it? (Or maybe you don’t?) Input and opinions welcome! :)
