Day 222: Fictional Fathers: Frozen

Even fathers from fictional stories can be a good or bad example. For example, in the recent Disney movie “Frozen” the father of the main characters is an interesting person. He learns that one of his daughters has magical powers that could potentially be dangerous. There are different ways he could’ve handled the situation, but he decided that he would lock her away from everyone else and teach her to conceal her feelings and her powers. This results into her growing into an adult who still suppresses her feelings and wants no contact with the outside world for the fear of being branded a monster. In the end, all of these efforts were for nothing, as she still loses control over her power and causes great harm.

Luckily, the story has a happy ending. As fathers, however, we need to be careful not to tell our children to suppress their feelings and their talents. A person who is strong always has the ability to either use their strength for good to help others or to use it for evil to hurt others. It all depends on how we teach them to control and use their strength.
