Frozen 2

A friend with mid school age children says kids love Frozen and don't see it as a coming out movie. Rather, it's about the kind of differences that make childhood painful. You are too smart, too bookish, too geeky, too nerdy...

It works as that, too.

While we talked about this, I began to think about how deep the wounds of childhood can be. The 19th century psychoanalysts focused on the harm done within the nuclear family. This is important, of course. But teachers and peer groups and the general community can also do harm.

If Frozen helps kids deal with being different and not fitting in, the more power to it. The kids may grow up to be happier adults.
