A subject of interest for me is the role of fairytales and folk stories in bringing out and nourishing children’s spirituality.
There are many reasons why I think fairy tales are good for kids development. This article outlines just a few. Fairy Tales do the following:
Teach right from wrong
Help children deal with emotions
Develop cultural literacy introducing them to different cultures
Develop critical thinking skills
They are fun!
Parents have a great opportunity when their kids are young to help them learn about people, the world, and themselves. Fairy tales provide kids the chance to put themselves in the shoes of the characters, which allow children and begin to develop essential decision-making skills. These are skills that will help children throughout their lives.
