“And then the princess found herself locked in a tower surrounded by a stinky moat with crocodiles and a huge scary dragon guarding the door,” read the mother, with her eyes wide and voice deep. Then, she made a sad face and continued softly, “So, the poor princess waited and waited for her prince to come–” *”But, why was she waiting for the prince, mumma?!”* asked the little girl, impatiently. The mother added, “To come and save her, silly.” “But, mumma, why did she need a prince to save her?” the girl asked again. “Uhh… hmm…” the mother was at a loss of words. The little girl said proudly, “If it were me, instead of waiting for years and years for a prince, I would have tamed the dragon and flew out of the window. I would have rescued myself.” She discarded the book and walked away, “This princess is stupid.” The mother whispered with a broad smile, “I guess it is time to rewrite the fairy tales.”
Moral – Lets teach our daughters to be self sufficient n independent rather than waiting for a prince or a miracle to happen!
