Kristen Bell Uses ‘Snow White’ To Teach Her Daughters About Consent & Like Yes

Kristen Bell may play a Disney princess in “Frozen,” but she still worries that some of the princesses teach her daughters the wrong lessons. 

The mother of two revealed in an interview with Parents magazine that she’s concerned with some of Snow White’s storyline and that she uses it to teach her daughters important lessons such as consent. 

“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?” Bell said to the publication. “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,” she said. 

Bell also asked her kids about Snow White’s famous kissing scene. 

“Don’t you think that it’s weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission? Because you can not kiss someone if they’re sleeping!” she asked.

The quotes received some backlash, which Bell called them “annoying and misplaced.” She explained in a response to a follower that she was just advocating for her daughters to “process critical thinking.” 

Bell also tweeted according to ENews, “actually, everything IS a message to our children, because they are sponges that soak up everything and are learning how to be adults through what they see. I want my girls to see and practice critical thinking and respectful behavior.” 

One person on Twitter even accused Bell of being a “hypocrite” for “cashing” her “huge check” to play a Disney princess. In a perfect clap back, Bell said: “It’s cute that you guys are making jokes about something that I feel is very important. I’d be happy to send you copies and snow white and frozen, and you can see the differences. How far the example set for women has come. It might enlighten your point of view.”

Honestly, snaps for Kristen Bell for having an open and honest conversation about consent with her kids.
