When I was a preteen/teenager girly movies about other girls' troubles were my livelyhood. I clung to the stories and would dream that I was them. I found self esteem through them. If they could make it through their problems why couldn't I make it through mine?
Princess Diaries was one of my favorites. It has EVERYTHING a girl like that could want. There's the girl with problems similar to yours. Then, there's the whole fairy tale part of it where she finds out she's secretly a princess. Her struggles with becoming the princess everyone she wants her to be and the princess she is helps boost self esteem. At least it helped me.
I recently watched it with my three year old. I realized that it is fun to watch for the whole family. My three year old just sees the princess part of it. She doesn't get the deeper emotions and stuggles to it because she hasn't come across those things in life yet. And it's still entertaining to me because it lets me remember my times as a preteen/teen. Fun stuff! hehe.
So next time you're looking for a movie for a special night with your daughter pick up this one. It won't disappoint.
