The Little Mermaid

Do you think this story is about a rebellious teenager who gets her own way, or a father who overcomes his prejudice? Does King Triton’s solution to the problem between Ariel and Prince Eric’s union affect your opinion? Why do you think the ruler didn’t give the prince a tail instead? How might a different ending have changed the story?

Why does Ariel (the girl who has everything) feel the world above would be so much better than the ocean where she lives? Do you think she is right? Why do the things we don’t have often seem better than the things we do have?
