See Moana at Hong Kong Disney Land Resort

Thursday, July 19, 2018

     Strong, independent, determined- three characteristics that parents want to hone their children these days. In the age of modern technology, I noticed that kids these days can't last a day without using their gadgets.

     I'm guilty of this because my son uses his iPad every day and when I try to lessen his gadget time, he will say that he's already bored. We cannot blame technology for this and as parents, all we can do is to set limits and teach important things in life that will bring out the best in them in the future. So how to inculcate this to them in an enjoyable way? Read more below :)

     I was cleaning our room last week and found Moana and Pua plushies inside our stuff toy cabinet.
Moana's movie flashed back in my mind and reminded me of the values that children may learn from this brave little girl. Disney movies teach important life lessons in a fun and magical way that's why I encourage my son to watch one Disney movie at a time.

     What's with Moana and the life lessons that we'll learn from her? Three F's: Family is important, Failure is a part of life and Follow your dream. 

1. Family is important

     The basic unit of the society. This is the foundation of a child's life. It's in the family where each of the members learns values, feel loved and secured, and develop a sense of belongingness. Moana's brave character was shaped because of love. She is out to help her people and her biggest supporter is her grandmother.

     Moana's grandmother loves her so much and the love that holds their hearts became the foundation of Moana's character. I always tell my son that family first no matter what. If there's love, unity, and happiness in the family, the child will grow with respect not only to the elderly but to each and every individual.

2. Failure is a part of life

     Moana faced a lot of obstacles and failures in her journey. But because of the desire to save her people, she did not give up and just continue the journey. Nobody's perfect. There will be times that we will fail even if we did our best.

     I was checking Kenzo’s quizzes yesterday and saw that he failed in one of the subjects. I was not happy with what I saw because we reviewed the lesson well. Then suddenly, my son approached me and apologized for what happened. He explained to me that he got confused with the instructions and promised that he’ll do better in the next quiz. Moana’s story reminded me that failures will make you a better person. Instead of getting mad, I should encourage him to study hard and learn from his mistakes.

3. Follow your dream

     Moana struggles with the expectation of her father who is always in her heart. Sometimes, it's hard to balance things especially in the situation of what your parents want versus what you really want. For me, I'll be supportive of what my son wants to achieve or do. I'll be the mother who will always tell his son to "choose what makes you happy". I know it will be hard for me when the time comes that he needs to be on his own but because of the love, care, trust, and support that we are giving him,  he will always treasure the moments we had at home.

     I will let my son follow his dream and I'll always be here to support him anytime, anywhere. That's the Moana spirit- following your heart's desires.

     These life lessons from Moana teaches us to be strong, independent, and determined. Letting the kids learn these values in their early years will help build good character traits that will impact their happiness.
