Kindermärchen: why we like it – once upon a time – to hear

Once upon a time … This is the beginning of every familiar children’s fairy tale. Even then and today. But why are fairy tales so valuable and still the reading favorite of their grandchildren??

Children’s tales symbolically tell of the feelings and experiences that every grandchild knows. These are simple feelings that everyone has already experienced in some form: love, joy, but also envy, fear, hatred and greed. The way fairy tales convey these feelings shows that one is not alone with feelings. Others feel the same feelings. In the end, however, there is always a happy ending. It teaches children that life is good and you can do anything, no matter how hopeless it seems!

Their grandsons are also made by children‘s fairy tales to talk about their own fears. “Hansel and Gretel” raises the question of whether there are really witches. Or: Do parents really leave their children alone in the forest? Your grandchildren will ask these questions. By talking about these fears, they can also be overcome.

At the same time children’s fairy tales serve as a motivator. Her grandchildren learn that with courage you can master everything and solve tricky situations. This will eventually reward you too. So they learn to face their fear and trust their own abilities.

The pictorial representation of certain contents appeals to her grandchildren. Children can not rationalize the world yet. In order to understand certain processes, they think up creative processes. For them, it is perfectly logical that the frog turns into a prince and that the house of the witch is made of gingerbread. This allows her grandchildren to identify much better with these stories than with the real world, and in doing so stimulate their imagination.

In the end, her grandchildren will remember individually different fairy tales in everyday life. As children’s tales tell of different experiences, their grandchildren will find themselves in a similar situation and remember that the fairy tale hero has faced this fear.

In addition, children’s fairy tales are wonderful sleep stories, which you can read aloud in the arms of your grandparents …
