I'm sure this has been asked in the past but I can't find it. Why do so few of Disney's main characters have both parents? I understand the concept of the writers wanting you to empahize with the 'hero' but it seems to be almost a signature Disney theme. The reason I'm asking is because my 6yo son is adopted and he is suddenly very curious about it. Starting to wonder if it's a bad idea to let him watch them so often since he is adopted and the idea of temporary parents might be worrying him. I had always joked in the past that if you're a parent in a Disney movie, you got a 50/50 chance of making it out alive. But it's so obvious that even my 6 year old is calling them out on it. Thanks for any ideas/opinions!
