Writing Prompt: Bedtime Stories

My favorite story book was Cinderella and her two horrible step sisters and her step mother. I always wondered how anyone can be so mean.

It was a fairy tale I knew but in real life these things happen too, when the father remarries and ignores the first wife’s kid.

There were things in the story that taught me to be fair to everyone,never to treat someone poorly, to be kind and unselfish.

The right stories do teach   children early in life why it’s a bad idea to be mean.

  1. Dear Chaman, thank you for sharing this with us. That’s very true, they do carry an important message with them.

  2. Hi Ranu, yesterday I purchased a book’ Grandma’s Bag of Stories’ , I still enjoye children’s book and stories. They always teach some lesson.

  3. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post. I like Cinderella and other stories, variants of which are found cross-culturally. It’s said that Rhodopis, a tale about a Greek slave-girl who marries the king of Egypt, is the earliest known variant of the Cinderella myth.

    All good wishes,
