Disney has finally created a program that I will encourage my children to watch. No princesses, just a smart and imaginative girl who can be a positive role model. I am a mom of 4 bright multi-racial children. I am also an early childhood special educator. My six year old daughter is on the autism spectrum, and she has talked about becoming a doctor since she was four years old. She has the lab coat etc, and much like the character in the show, she pretends to "heal" her toys.
Considering the overwhelming amount of biased attention young girls in our culture receive, it is heartening to know that Disney is willing to scratch beneath the surface. The great majority of young girls of color are just as smart and imaginative as "Doc Mc Stuffins." Now my daughter and her friends can finally see themselves reflected back to them in a loving and respectful light.
Kudos to Disney!
