So we are pretty much tv free household. No working cable just a DVD player and a small hand picked DVD selection. My partner and I watch certain shows and movies after hours (when kids are asleep) on the computer. However, since my 4yo D was born whenever we have visited our families who live 7 hrs away, they just put tons of kid shows and movies on for her. I have always been so against disney films especially the damsel in distress ones: cinderella, sleeping beauty, snow white etc. Now I am totally disgusted but my daughter seems to have seen most of these mainly at my in-laws who have an extensive Disney collection specifically created for her!!!
We go there and she just expects it. I have a real hard time with it but it appears that my moment to rise has passed and I am feeling meek and ashamed that I was not more proactive and adamant at stopping the exposure, too busy enjoying a break.
I am wondering.....has anyone experienced something similar and how do I stop it without seeming like a "bad guy" and where do I go from here with her. Some problems that I am having is that we are planning on doing Waldorf ed. I am hoping her exposure doesn't inhibit her and I am getting really limited on answers when she asks me to do her hair like cinderella....Help!!!
