Why do children need terrible tales, preschoolers

Tales love both children and adults. This is a special world where good triumphs over evil. All obstacles are overcome, all villains are punished, and good heroes get half the kingdom and a happy marriage. But there are fairy tales from which horror and darkness in my adult hair stand on end.

Good fairy tales help the child grow a good person. After all, they are taught to help the weak and needy, not to offend anyone and not to deceive, to believe in good.

Evil characters show the kid that in the world there is deceit and lies, and you can not trust just anyone. Among other advantages of magic stories: the development of fantasy, thinking and speech. Reading a fairy tale is a ritual, the baby calms down.

And from fairy tales for older children, the child learns that life is not a sweet gingerbread. There are scary moments in it: relatives or friends may die, acquaintances or strangers commit meanness and betrayal. Alas, this is a fact of life, and a child should also be prepared for this.


And welcome with an ax

But, my dear, there is a frank gloom and horror. And they caught him, they kept him in a barrel with nails for 3 days, they cooked him for a week in the cauldron, then they ripped off his skin, took out his heart and ate it. Blood stream brains on the walls. Good night, son.

Take Hans Christian Andersen. No, not the sad little tale Mermaid. Did you read the Red Shoes? Not?

The vain girl was bewitched by her shoes; she danced in them, without ceasing, at night in the cemetery. At the last gasp, she rode to the executioner and asked to chop off her legs. He cut off his feet with shoes sped away. The girl limped to the church, repented and gave her soul to God.

And Charles Perrault and his hit – Bluebeard, puddles of blood and the body of murdered wives? The villain killed the naughty and curious women, until he himself was killed by good people.

Most of all in childhood I was afraid of the tales of the Brothers Grimm. And the story about two children, whose parents, unable to feed, was sent to the forest – the kindest, probably. Just think, two crumbs roasted the witch alive, and then they robbed her house. She was going to eat them at all!

How exquisitely in these tales punished the villains! Rolled in barrels of nails, put on hot shoes and forced to dance to death. And the unconscious villains just birds pecked out eyes.

But the good ones also annealed. The goat broke the belly of the wolf with scissors, took out her swallowed alive children, stuffed her belly with stones and sewed it up again. Poor girl dad cut off his hands, and she tied them on his back, and so she went. The king killed the children in order to revive the servant with their blood …

Sheer violence, murder, bloody mess and orgies. From the song, of course, you will not throw out the words, but now it is not the Middle Ages, when these fairy tales were composed!

As a child I asked not to read these fairy tales to me, because it was scary. It is terrible to listen, it is terrible to sleep and even more terrible to get up at night, especially at my grandmother’s private house.

When I became older and read myself, I wondered why so much cruelty and why there is no happy ending, what does this tale teach me? And only as an adult, I understand that these fairy tales are not made for children. This is fantasy, trash and horror movies of the time.

My lesson

Nevertheless, I learned one positive lesson from the terrible tales of the Brothers Grimm. Just do not laugh, now I will tell.

In one tale, the cannibal giants caught a girl. Before they made their dinner, they gave the poor thing a red cup and a cup of white wine. She drank and her heart broke. I remembered for a lifetime. And alcoholic beverages never mix.
