“And they lived happily ever after.” Think about this line for a few minutes.Are you living happily ever after?If not, what will take for you to get there?
“And they lived happily ever after.” This line is so familiar in fairy tales. In real life there are a lot of obstacles, one must encounter to live happily ever after. Human nature is very complex, when they have all the wealth they need and then some, they are not happy, they wish they had more.This wish takes away the pleasure to live happily.
A man with enough money to meet his daily existence seems happier than the one who has too much. Too much or too little money is always a problem.
I am contented to have enough to maintain my daily life. I will not say I haven’t struggled I did right after my dad passed away. But we learned to deal with it because of my mother’s belief, that this will pass one day.
Money is not the only thing which makes one unhappy, kids can also be the source of unhappiness, if we can have patience to bear it, this might pass too, although in some cases it doesn’t .
Looking at myself I’ll say I have weathered the storms in my life. I am thankful to God for helping me overcome them.
Tooth Fairy,Easter Bunny,or Santa Claus are all fairy tales. Children love fairy tales such as milkmaid and her pail, the chicken little story, there are a lot of these stories which mothers read to their babies to get them used to listening.
I have done so myself I always felt the little ones knew these are not true stories , but they loved to hear them, because something about them made them invent stories they themselves wanted to hear.
I remember my younger sister once told me about little babies she planted and they have blossomed into gorgeous infants. I was so thrilled I wanted to see them , but I wasn’t able to. Never did I tell her she was lying.
Fantasy is a very powerful work of imagination, it makes us imagine beautiful things and helps us to be creative when we grow up. I still love to read “Grimms Fairy tales”, it takes me where I’d love to be even though I know it’s only a fantasy.
Make-believe stories are harmless, I don’t see anything wrong to tell stories to help children’s imagination, listening habit and interest. I would not say it is a pointless justification for lying to children. We do not tell these stories to make children better liars but to improve their imagination.
