3 Things the Oscars Can Teach Your Kids
When the Oscars roll around, so does a wonderful opportunity to discuss some important topics with our children.
1. Modesty Matters
Whew! There are some really risqué dresses worn at the Academy Awards. So somewhere along the way the actresses went from little girls in little girl clothes, to grown women in too little clothes.
2. Ugly Ducks Can Become Swans
If you’ve listened to many of the speeches at the Oscars, you’ll hear the common theme of the outsider kid who eventually made it. So remember that your struggling child is a work in progress. Encourage her to reach for her dreams.
3. Love Can Last
Who will be with whom at the Oscars? You never know. Some Hollywood relationships, and even marriages, last about as long as it takes to shoot a film. So, be sure your kids aren’t buying into the myth that marriage is about going from person to person to “find your happiness.”
