It gives them hope, entertaining them to sleep and tell them, there is always ‘happy forever’.
But in recent years, many have been in-depth showing some fairy tales such as ‘Cinderella’ and ‘Sleeping Beauty’ have a damaging effect in the years of developing children.
A few years ago, Christian actress Bell expressed his inconvenience with the most famous daughter’s tale at Disney “Snow White”.

The impact of fairy tales in sons and daughters
A fiction work is something that comes from someone’s imagination.
But it is for some point reflection from the reality we live in.
While adults to some extent know where to draw lines, children are vulnerable and innocent and can take everything for how exactly presented.
Fairy Tales for example positive in many aspects.
It helps children build resilience, make them hope and encourage them to dream and aspire.

Representation is something very important.
Someone does not need to shake the facts, but eliminate one part of the community fully needs a victim to the development of everyone who is part of the community.
In the work of the guardian in 2015, an older adult young writer Daniel José José, “Literature work is not to protect young people from the ugly world; it is to arm them with the language they have known..

That said, someone must aim to expose children to different writing genres.
Parents must help children interpret and question errors that have long dominated our lives.
We must treat them as active recipients of what they read.
