What is Morality? I see morality as a common known concept that holds additional, smaller subcategories to it. We all know that moralities are something to live by, and are always unique, including our own. Although many people may not know their own morals on the spot, they subconsciously live by them. We learn as humans to develop our own morals, or live by what we are taught. The teachings all start as soon as you’re born. Your brain is constantly learning, observing, and developing. As young infants grow into toddlers they begin to start learning from right and wrong. This begins to create on how the child sees the right morals and remember them in their memory.The main stream of how they learn the right morals, other than from their own parents, is their exposure to television’s movies.
One of the absolute top movie productions is Disney. They create animated films, their start dating back since the 1930’s, that are mainly focused on being for children below the age of ten. Disney produces many films about romance, adventure, and problem solving. There are the Disney princesses, who always find a prince in the end, and then there are the following adventures, in which the main character must overcome an obstacle in the end. Each story has their own moral to it. There is Aladin and Pinocchio with their overall moral of never lie. Mulan shows that no matter what gender you are, you can still be proud, strong, and excel beyond other’s expectations. And there is Beauty and the Beast, with the importance of personality stretches beyond their looks. All of these Disney movies provide a very catching story for young children, but also teach them right from wrong. At such a young age, a child is most likely to hold onto the moral, learn from it, and develop their personality off of it as they grow up.
Majorly, the development process throughout a human’s life never ends, but is much more significant when young. What you learn then as morals mostly affects how you will follow them and believe them yourself. The younger young children begin to learn the morals of right from wrong show that they will grow to know the difference, and most likely become well-rounded people with good morals. All together, morality is taught majorly through childhood movies, such as all of Disney’s, and is definitely beneficial to them.
