Life Lessons for the Little Warriors: Kung Fu Panda Style

Kungfu Panda-4 just released recently and if you have already watched it with your little masters, you probably know that they loved every bit of it. If you haven’t watched it yet, we bet that you’ve been coaxed enough to make plans to watch the movie with the little ones. Either way, the movie is packed with excellent life lessons for all of us and we would like to recap some of them in Po’s style. Here’s hoping that by now you already know who Po is. (Hint: He’s the loveable protagonist of the movie).

6 Life Lessons Your Little Warriors Can Learn from Kung Fu Panda

1. Embrace Your Uniqueness

Right from the beginning when Po is chosen to be the Dragon Warrior, everyone has some expectations from him. They want him to fit into this preconceived profile of how a dragon warrior should be. But that’s not Po’s style. After some internal debates, he realizes that his strength comes from being himself and that’s the first step in his journey towards becoming the Dragon Warrior.



Children encounter different situations every day which may cause them to doubt themselves or make them conceal their real personalities. As parents and educators, we need to constantly encourage them to embrace their uniqueness. It’s their uniqueness that makes them special, and there is nothing that they need to hide. 

2. Respect For Others

Respect is the cornerstone of all interactions we have and relations we make. In Kung Fu Panda movies, we witness how Po is respectful to his master and all his teammates. The virtues of empathy and kindness need to be instilled in children through everyday interactions. Teach them the value of respect through simple gestures like taking turns to talk, listening to others, and speaking politely. These small acts will lay the foundation for bigger meaningful lessons in life.

3. Embrace Change

Po reminds us to live in the moment and embrace life with all its ups and downs. Staying fixated on a particular lifestyle or habit may not always be the best and when the time comes, we need to embrace change and be ready to adapt.



Discuss any potential changes or shifts in schedules with your preschoolers and teach them to navigate transitions with grace and positivity. Whether it’s starting a new year at school, the first day at a new preschool activity, or moving to a new neighborhood, encourage them to approach new experiences with an open heart and a new sense of adventure. 

4. Power Of Persistence

Po is a constant reminder that success is not only about the skills and resources you’re born with. It hugely depends on your hard work and persistence. When faced with new challenges, Po doesn’t give up; He keeps getting on his feet, no matter how many times he falls.

“There is No Secret Ingredient”

Explain to your little ones the value of persistence, and how determination and resilience will go a long way in helping them achieve their goals. Whether it’s mastering a new skill, learning math, or joining preschool activities, persistence goes a long way.

5. Believe In Yourself

Po, a noodle maker, thinks that he took on more than he could chew, in the initial phase of becoming the Dragon Master. However, his constant belief in himself, through the ups and downs of his quest is what made Po the true Dragon Master.

“There is No Charge for Awesomeness…or Attractiveness.”

Instill confidence in your little ones by reminding them they are capable of greatness. With a dash of determination, even the most difficult tasks can be achieved. Encourage them to dream big, pursue their passions, and defeat their fears with confidence and gusto. 

6. Never Stop Learning

Po’s journey from novice to Dragon Warrior is an ongoing Odyssey. We witness his growth and transformation in every phase of his life. He doesn’t sit tight and relax once he’s a Dragon warrior but is always on a quest to acquire more knowledge and wisdom in his journey to become a better warrior every day.



Educate your child that learning never stops. We always have something new to learn, a new skill, a new hobby, a new subject, and the list goes on. Encourage their curiosity by answering their questions, or asking them new ones. Curiosity will help them conquer fears and inhibitions, more than bravery.
