Would you show your kids The Little Mermaid or leave it as a relic of the past?

as it has outdated gender roles and a surprising amount of nudity for a kids movie


Oh, definitely show them - the song "under da sea" is just AWESOME!!!!! Cheers ;-) +++++

I think it is a good movie that shows values kids today are lacking.


The stage show is much better, assuming you get a good Ursula, but the Disney cartoon has its merits.


Watch it, but use it as a passive teaching tool? "Can you believe they spend all day in their swimsuits?" Other comments mentioning other values that are important to you about gender/relationship roles See it as less of a threat, and more of an opportunity to lightly reinforce what you intend to be taught.
