SHARE WITH YOUR CHILDREN THE VALUE OF POSITIVITY WITH ANNIE’S HEARTFELT THEMES
1. POSITIVITY AS A WAY OF LIFE
ANNIE is fuelled with optimism and the perserverance to live life fully, no matter what life throws at you. It is the motivating belief that Tomorrow, things will be better, the sun will still shine and it’s another chance at life. ANNIE was born an orphan and went through a Hard Knock Life but she does not let that get her down. This is an inspiring way to live that can be shared with your children!
2. IMPORTANCE OF FAMILY
ANNIE expands the definitions of family and shows its importance for a joyful life. From the love, acceptance and loyalty of her fellow orphans and her dog to billionaire businessman Oliver Warbucks, ANNIE shows that families can come in all unexpected shapes, sizes and ways and are people you feel comfortable with. Importantly as well, family members accept you exactly as you are; as an evolving individual who is imperfectly perfect. This will help your children accept themselves and appreciate their loved ones more.
3. VALUE OF BEING MORALLY-GROUNDED
ANNIE was born mired in poverty and difficult circumstances, yet she still stands by her morals that champion justice, fairness, honesty. These values guide her daily actions and behaviour towards others in a way that is fair, generous and also honours herself. Of course ANNIE also reminds us that a healthy dose of common sense doesn’t hurt! It is a fun way to remind your children about the importance of having morals and not being afraid to stand by them.
