collin farrell says disney movies help his son james make progress

This is simply parenting at its finest!!

In addition to being a fantastic, world famous actor, Colin Farrell is a proud papa to two boys, one of whom suffers from a rare genetic disorder known as Angelman Syndrome.

Things don't always come easy to his 10-year-old son James due to his learning disability, and sometimes things as simple as watching a movie can be a difficult task.

However, the veteran actor says they are making HUGE progress, and he's been making an effort to introduce him and Henry to some of the classics:

"I’m trying to introduce Disney into my diet and introduce it into [their] diet for the first time. We’ve gone old school — Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Lady and the Tramp."

Awww! How precious!!!

While Colin says his boys are definitely enjoying their Disney nights with daddy, there are some movies they aren't quite ready for yet:

"I put on Cinderella and the two of them were like …'No!'"

Ha! We're sure they'll come around eventually!!

It's so amazing to see the love and affection that Colin has for his boys, and it definitely sounds like the extra time is helping James make some progress!

Way to go, papa bear!
