Kristen Bell Questions Message 'Snow White' Sends to Kids

Kristen Bell is opening up about reading Snow White to her two daughters, and the messages within the book that might be sent to her kids.

“Every time we close Snow White I look at my girls and ask, ‘Don’t you think it’s weird that Snow White didn’t ask the old witch why she needed to eat the apple? Or where she got that apple?’ I say, ‘I would never take food from a stranger, would you?’ And my kids are like, ‘No!’ And I’m like, ‘Okay, I’m doing something right,’” Kristen told Parents magazine.

That’s not the only question Kristen poses to her kids.

“Don’t you think that it’s weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission? Because you cannot kiss someone if they’re sleeping!” Kristen added, referring to consent. “I look at my child’s brain like a hungry stomach — I have to feed it every day. Even if I’m rushed, I have to feed their brain just like I feed their belly.”

    Every single day it’s another complaint from 3rd-wave feminists. Every. single. day. They are locked in a vicious cycle of perpetual outrage and malcontent.

    She needs to shut up, so pathetic.

  • Eric A

    I suppose that when she get back home late at night, after a shooting day, for example, she doesn’t check upon her kids asleep. And therefore don’t kiss them good night because she wouldn’t have their consent.
    Give us break!

    Well at least she’s a bit better than Keira Knightly who doesn’t let her kids watch Disney movies at all.

  • Sansa Squad

    Parents kissing their children goodnight is very different from a man kissing a woman he’s never met while she sleeps. (Especially considering how rarely a man would find himself in that situation, it’s hard to imagine it outside of a predatory context.) She’s right to make that distinction if she’s going to let her kids watch that kind of content. It’s called responsible parenting.

  • Sansa Squad

    Using problematic media messages to start a dialogue with your children and creating teachable moments feels like much better parenting than forbidding your children from consuming something altogether (which in many cases might just make them want it more). I think this is good advice and she seems like a responsible mom!

    People need to relax! It’s a fairytale for goodness sake. We have to let kids be kids and let their imaginations take over and let them believe in something happy and lovely. There’s so much darkness in the World today let them enjoy a little story that offers happiness instead of war and death.

    Oh please…please get some help if you can’t simply enjoy and read a fairytale to your children and let them enjoy it! What should we be reading to our children at night, perhaps a good John Grisham or a Political tell all…maybe Hitler’s manifesto on how to cleanse the human race?!?

    No please, you get help if you can’t simply get the great parenting example of Kristen. And it seems you can’t read very well, she reads that fairytale tale to her kids but uses the questionable behaviour in it to teach a valuable lesson.

    Looks like you are really in love with that uncalled for manifesto, kinda scary be near you

  • Stoni

    Filling your kids heads with a bunch of crap/brainwashing them is not being a good parent.

  • JK

    If you think that showing your kids about consent and take care of questionable behavior of strangers then you have proved my point, she’s a terrific parent and you clearly will never be

  • KS_in_TP

    BYE FOOL.

  • JK

    Hello you troll fool

  • Stoni

    You are just as ridiculous as her. These Disney fairytales have been around for years with no issues until now. I stand by my statement, it’s ridiculous.

  • Stoni

    You think it’s scary to be near everyone. Sounds to me like you’re paranoid.

  • JK

    Disney fairytales?, LOL you keep proving my point, it’s a tale from the Grimm brothers from the 19th century, I stand by my statement you’r so ignorant, and if you can see the problem youare just ridiculously ignorant

  • Stoni

    Consent is consent. You can’t make it acceptable sometimes and not other times, don’t blur the lines.

  • JK

    And sgess teaching her kids about that. You’re not blurring the lines, you’re just showing how ignorant you are

  • Stoni

    You are the perfect example of why society sucks these days. Too many sensitive people/snowflakes.

  • Stoni

    Obviously you don’t know what blurring the lines means because this is exactly what it is.

  • JK

    Be near an ignorant troll like you is really scary, paranoid is a person like you that feels that being offended by good parent skills is needed. Troll

  • JK

    No darking, you are the problem: an entitled ignorant troll

  • JK

    Pity you, keep proving the sick troll that you are

  • Stoni

    O yes when someone doesn’t agree with you call them a troll. So predictable

  • Stoni

    O yes the troll accusations. You are paranoid.

  • JK

    When someone don’t have a single argument but hate, like you, you became a troll. That’s all
