Do you see the Elena in your child?

Hi Folks!

Many of my female friends who have sons rather than daughter would longed to have a daughter who can accompany them to do all the girly stuff together when they grow up. I do agree with that and am very fortunate to have one daughter too.

Recently, Disney Channel (ASTRO Ch 615) introduces Disney’s latest Princess named Elena, a strong-willed and courageous teenager.

She fought an evil sorceress who attacked her family and was trapped inside an enchanted jewel for decades before she was freed. Now, after saving her kingdom at the tender age of 16, she is the Crown Princess of Avalor and rules with guidance from the Grand Council.

Despite going through many challenges in learning how to be a good ruler, Elena is decisive and fearless in standing up for herself and what she believes in. In addition to guidance from the Grand Council on ruling, Elena also has some special help in the form of Zuzo, her spirit guide; three flying jaquins (magical creatures that are part jaguar and part macaw; and a Sceptre of Light which has many powers that help Elena overcome magical and non-magical challenges.

With every episode, Elena exhibits many admirable qualities such as thoughtfulness, resilience, compassion and leadership which young girls can aspire to. 

I truly observe such Princess-like qualities in my daughter, KY too.

She is the most thoughtful especially after i had ZS. I remember she was holding ZS milk bottle(feeding him) while feeding herself after coming back from ballet class(even though she was tired and hungry too). Even right up till now, she's ZS biggest ally whenever it comes to anything ZS wishes support of. Here she is helping to push his brother on an ice-skating rink instead of skating around freely like the other brother SE.

She is very resilience being a ballerina (Grade 4 now and getting tougher and tougher as they moved up the grade) who often under very strict training, criticism and even rejection of her moves and "stunts" or when she did not managed to get elected in school performance due to the teacher wanted them to focus on their schoolwork. She bounces back after feeling really sad about it within the next day.

She is filled with compassion especially mommy is down with loads of work both at school and at home. She would offer to cook her lunch for herself and her brothers when i was too busy.

She definitely has the leadership qualities in her and she loves to lead. She loves to choreograph dance routine and gather everyone together to practice and also prepare together. She loves to perform!

I am so proud of her.
Now, what about you? Do you see the Elena in your child?

Would love to hear from you.
