Fairy Tales and Children (Response)

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” -Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein was such an insightful man. He was capable of many things. Fairy tales teach kids moral values. They also teach them how to behave, right from wrong and many time instill certain fears in them. I think something that is often overlooked about fairy tales are the psychological effects. For example, if a parents reads their child a fairy tale each night, rather than watching TV, that’s bonding time that child needs. It could be said that this time makes the child more confident in the abilities and therefore tries harder and does better in school- translating to a more intelligent child in the long run. I think it’s sensical that if a child spends more time with their parent, learning about the way life works and reading stories the child finds fun, they’re going to perform better and feel better. At least, that’s my analysis of it.
