We have recommended many great themed movies to you before.
Good educational films not only touch our hearts but also serve as a catalyst for parents or teachers to reflect on their values. Today, I would like to recommend 10 excellent parenting movies that correspond to 10 essential challenges children face on their journey of growth, providing you with a unique perspective. Each of these films is a true classic and worth watching attentively more than five times. How many of them have you watched?
--When a child experiences first love, there's no need to overreact. Respecting their feelings is the key.
Gifted--Give the control of developing their talents back to the child.
Frank Adler adopted his niece, Mary, after her sister Diane committed suicide due to depression, a talented girl with outstanding mathematical talent, in accordance with her sister’s last wish to let Mary live a happy ordinary life.
However, when Mary’s grandmother found the gifted girl, she decided to take Mary away and force Mary to become a learning tyrant with a strict to nearly cruel education method: she kept the child at home and studied mathematics day and night.
The scenario is similar – Mary’s mother, Diane, grew up in this kind of “hell training,” and suicide is more or less related to this kind of stress. Now Grandma is back to making Mary the second Diane.
However, Mary didn’t want to live what Grandma called the “genius life.” She rejected her grandmother’s adoption, saying, “My uncle loved me even before he found out I was smart.” Obviously, Frank’s unconditional love made Mary feel more at ease.
As a result, Frank took the custody back, and Mary lived a very different life from her mother Diane:She was willful to play, brave to love, experience the fun that all her peers would experience, and live optimistically and positively.
The movie teaches us one thing:We should never force our children to become “perfect children,” but let them find what they really love and grow up to be who they are. Only unconditional love can give children the best sense of security.
The Bottom of the World--Before educating a child, become a trusted friend they can rely on.
A great movie that is easy to miss because of the bad title.
Kudo Sayega, a high school student who likes to be unconventional and extremely beautiful, has a father who prefers boys over girls and cannot be cultivated properly. Sayega’s high school has a system of internal promotion, so she spends all day eating and drinking with her little sisters, and has no intention of falling to the bottom of the whole grade.
When the world looks down on Sayega, the gentle mother still goes all out to help her child.She sent Sayega to Pingtian teacher’s cram school. After a proficiency test, she was only the fourth grade level, but Pingtin teacher ignored her.
The students he is dealing with are all problem teenagers in the eyes of the secular world: they like caricatures, slapstick, and absurd behaviors,but he knows how to make the best use of the situation, always fully understands the fun of children, and will use their hobbies to stimulate their enthusiasm for learning, and become one with them.
As a result, he soon became good friends with Shayega. With the help of Pingtian, Shayega took his studies seriously and set up his great wish to get to Qingying University, from the bottom to the gifted students who let everyone look stupid.
There are never bad students, only bad education.We should be the authority that can explain the truth, but also be the good friend that the child is willing to trust.
Lonelier than Fireworks
--Listen to the inner voice of children and teach them to love bravely.
Hilary and Jackie are a pair of deep sisters, my sister learned to play the flute after a lot of glory, Jackie is not willing to show weakness, put into the cello study. Unexpectedly found that their talent is extraordinary, the family all focus on Jackie playing, never listen to the heart of Jackie.
So, even though Jackie has mature playing skills,apart from the cello, the stage where the lights are focused, and the sister who was extremely dependent on her since childhood, she is just a child who doesn’t know love, can’t take care of herself, and never reveals her heart to the outside world.
The people around her didn’t understand her either. As she grew up, even her husband was only attracted to her musical talent and couldn’t truly enter Jackie’s heart. Gradually, Jackie, who couldn’t find understanding, began to engage in absurd and extreme behavior. She became extremely dependent on her sister Hilary and made many unreasonable demands. But in the end, she was just lonelier than fireworks and walked towards destruction in her depression…
Once the heart is closed, it is difficult to open it again-it is much more important for children to learn to live, to love and to be independent with ordinary happiness than to develop their talents and become geniuses.
Little Miss Sunshine
-- Theperfect family is to support each other, together to dream.
7-year-old Chubby Girl Believes She Will Be Miss USA One Day My father is a lecturer who can’t sell his successful courses, my brother is an autistic man, my uncle is a gay man who has been abandoned and attempted suicide, my grandfather is an old rascal who was driven out of a nursing home, and my mother is the only normal person in this crazy family.
It seems that this family of origin is too bad – everyone is a loser. At first glance, children who grow up in this family environment will have a “childhood shadow.”
However, the fat girl, who looked like an ugly duckling and was rejected by the mainstream aesthetics, gradually became confident. And this strange family, in the story spread out, the original is a dream.They will not laugh at their children’s beauty pageant dreams, but the whole family will go out together to help their children get on the stage and find the hope of life in supporting each other.
We always ask ourselves to be the best person with the highest standards, but no one is perfect, and instead of carefully crafted perfect, it is better to learn to unite and give children the courage and ability to face the unknown.
Miso Soup of Little Flower
-- Tocultivate the ability of independent thinking, the attitude of life.
The protagonist is a Japanese mother Chie, married a man called Anwu Shingo, she gave birth to a daughter, “Ah Hua,” despite the doctor’s opposition. Since then, Chie’s health has gone from bad to worse.
For Hana’s fourth birthday, Chie gave her daughter an apron – she decided to teach her children how to cook. This little thing is closely related to life, she wants to teach her daughter how to hold a kitchen knife, how to make delicious meals, how to build a healthy body.
Finally, Jen learned to squeeze different flavors of vegetable juice, learned to cook brown rice, and learned to cook soft and healthy brown rice, making beautiful and delicious sushi. Her miso soup is often mistaken for her mother’s masterpiece.
Soon, Chie died. My father had been drinking heavily.
Since then, Ah Hua has taken on the responsibility of her mother – cooking, cleaning, going to school by herself, cooking dinner for her father, and leaving a little note:”this is Ah Hua’s rice for his father, rice and dishes. Dad, you have to be brave and strong.”
The reason why this story is touching is not that a mother taught her children the skill of cooking,but that the mother and daughter completed an emotional exchange and the inheritance of an attitude towards life by using such a small thing as cooking.
Hunt for the Wilderpeople
--Have an equalcommunication, starting with putting aside prejudice.
Between a rebellious child and a grumpy uncle.
He wants to be a street fighter when he grows up. In fact, he longs to be loved. He is sent to a rural foster home by the welfare agency and meets a strange uncle with a bad temper. In order to be free, the little fat man decided to follow the strange uncle to escape and learn to survive in the wild.Unexpectedly, the welfare organization thought that the little fat man was kidnapped, launched a manhunt, and an old man and a young man began a great escape in their jungle of the ring…
This escape journey is also the process of rebellious children and strange uncles learning to respect each other and communicate equally. The little fat man was a “wild child” from small to large, no one cared about his heart, and no one paid attention to his value.In the woods, the illiterate strange uncle had several times asked the little fat man to read his dead wife’s obituary and teach him haiku.
When children behave differently from others, behave erratically and act out of bounds, they may simply desire attention, love and warmth.
--Example is better than an aristocratic education.
A Middle-Class Father’s Dilemma——In an effort to prevent his daughter from repeating his own “failed life,” a middle-class father meticulously plans her path to studying abroad. He believes that by keeping her away from Romania’s corrupt system, she has a chance to excel and achieve social mobility. However, a series of misfortunes and unexpected events shatter the father’s plans. In pursuit of his child’s future, he compromises his principles, resorts to connections, backdoors, and even bribery…
This once upright father, who instilled in his child the importance of professional ethics and fairness, finds himself becoming the person he once despised due to his overwhelming desire for his daughter’s success. This contradictory worldview brings him immense pain and leads to the breakdown of their relationship.
By the end of the film, the father finally realizes that he is powerless to control his child’s life. His past self-sacrifice was merely wishful thinking.
Perhaps parents do not have to push their children to the so-called aristocratic education.Less kidnapping in the name of love, more self-example, is the best character.
