Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.”
― G.K. Chesterton
When you have a child life literally revolves around them.Whatever we do seems to be centred on them.
When Bushra Nausheen nominated me for the 3 day 3 Quote challenge I was lost. So many quotes .
Then I won the #Addatales.
It was fairytale. Now I wrote fiction once in a blue moon literally.This with a help from a friend was a big surprise.I realized this was a sign to say thank you.
My daughter listens to fairy tales at bedtimes.Not because Einstein told us .But because she loves them.
It helps her learn about the power of being good.
About the power of dreams.
About believing in prayers.
Above all believing in yourself.
Teaching children life’s lessons are one of the more challenging jobs as a parent.
But making them realize that the power is inside them.That their choices will make their life.
Fairytales teach us about happiness ,optimism and health.
It teaches children that people can choose to be good or bad.
That not choosing is also a choice.
That all dragons, inside or outside need to be killed.
What are your favorite fairy tales?Have you slayed any dragons?
