Watching movies nightly is part of my husband's daily routine. Movie is his sleeping pill and an outlet from a tiresome day. I am not really into watching movies especially if it means paying for a ticket at the movie house. Hahahah! I could not even remember the last movie I watched.
Anyway, since Bren will be using the laptop to watch a film (which means that I could not do my online stuff) I therefore decided to join him. We watched the movie Ice Princess; a 2005 film by Walt Disney Pictures. Yes, it is an old movie but hubby wanted to watch his favorite movies over and over again and Ice Princess is one of them.

It was my first time watching Ice Princess and as a parent, I was struck by its story. Casey Carlyle (Michelle Trachtenberg), a bookworm and physics genius realized that being in Harvard is not her personal dream but a dream of her mom for her and she was giving it up to pursue her new found dream; to be a professional figure skater.
Being a parent myself, I understand that Casey's mom only wanted the best for her but I also realized that parents do not own their children and their future. They are only God's "babysitters" and "caretakers" and the best thing that they should do is guide them to develop their talents and potentials for them to be prepared for the future. I am sure that with the love and support of the family around them, any child will surely succeed in all their endeavors.
