  • The significance of fairy tales in the upbringing of children

    The Fairy Tale is the oldest work of the human spirit, which reaches the hoary antiquity of human history. However, the impact of fairy tales on a child's upbringing is often underestimated. But in vain. It is fairy tales that help to form the child's thinking and behavior from an early age. She independently begins to distinguish good from evil, learns to empathize with her favorite characters and overcome various obstacles with them.

    As the outstanding English writer Gilbert Chesterton wrote: "fairy tales do not tell children about the existence of Dragons. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children that dragons can be defeated."

    Learning different problems and peculiar challenges through fairy tales, the child will form different behaviors for himself in a particular situation and will continue to learn independence. It is these "fantastic stories" that help to harden the character, strength of mind and emotional stability of the baby.

    In addition, they not only develop the child's imagination, but also help to acquire the ability to form and defend their own opinion.
