The Tooth Fairy(or Easter Bunny or Santa Claus—) : a fun and harmless fiction, or a pointless justification for lying to children?
I think ,The Tooth Fairy, or Easter Bunny, or Santa Claus is a harmless fiction . These stories help children’s imagination. They are by nature imaginative, it is because their mothers always tell them make-believe stories, which they love.
I don’t think these stories are pointless justification for lying to children.
These stories motivate children to read, reading opens up new ideas and it gives an incentive to know what else is out there for them to know, curiosity builds personalities, those who are, have gone on to invent airplane, which is the best invention for mankind.
Humans have extraordinary imagination, I believe the stories of The Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny and Santa Claus are the reason a child’s imagination was encouraged which made them better, writers, readers inventors and so on.
