As much as I adore Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, the stop motion animated movie … I have to admit, there was a whole lot of bad parenting in the beginning. First of all, a shiny red nose may have been a treatable condition. Did the Donners even talk to a pediatrician? (or vet?)
Or even if it wasn’t a medical issue, why would Donner and his wife tell their kid he’s worthless unless he can conform to societal norms about their physical appearance?
Yeah, that’s not damaging at all. :-/
Jeez, I almost sound like someone who never got over her mother telling her she should stop dressing like a boy. Ahem.
