Movies are those wonderful gifts we have in life that can help us either escape from our reality, be introduced to a new perspective, or to educate us, or are just there to plain entertain us. Often times, when we have a hard day, it is nice to come home, curl up on the couch, and just watch a movie.
Parentless children often seek movies to help comfort them through their hard times, and they are especially drawn towards movies that feature the loss of a mother and or father.
Can you guess what production company makes the most films geared towards parentless children?
Walt Disney Studios is the #1 production company that produces movies for children about children that grow up parentless which makes them a great resource for parentless children to turn to.
What is wonderful (one of the many things) about a Disney film is it often starts out with a tragedy that happened to the young princess, the young fawn, the young boy, or the young mermaid but ends up proving that no matter what obstacles come into a child’s way during life, that they will be able to overcome anything through time. This concept is very inspirational to children and what better way to help children young and old cope with their loss than by watching a Disney movie?
The following are just some of the Disney movies that can comfort parentless children young and old that show at least one or more of the characters learning how to move forward with their life after they have lost one or both of their parents:
Pirates of the Caribbean
Lilo and Stitch
The Prince of Persia
Hannah Montana: The Movie
The Princess and the Frog
The Little Mermaid
Meet the Robinsons
Remember the Titans
Beauty and the Beast
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
A Goofy Movie
Angels in the Outfield
The Great Mouse Detective
The Sword in the Stone
The Fox and the Hound
It is hard to explain why films of others losing their parents can be comforting to a child. Perhaps it is because it shows our children that they are not alone in this parentless journey and they can better relate to characters on a screen that may be going through exactly what they are going through. Either way, parentless children can gain a lot of comfort by watching these parentless Disney movies for as always in the end, everyone was able to live happily ever after.
Parentless children need to know that everything will be all right. They need to know that they too can live happily ever after just like the characters from the screen did.
