What Parents Need to Know

  • Branding for the Disney characters is everywhere. Here are some tips to help your kids become grounded in a sea of commercialism.
  • Why is it important for Tigger to find someone who looks like him? Does looking like someone make that person feel more like family? What is your definition of family?
