There’s a debate raging at the moment about whether it’s right to allow young children to listen to scary fairy tales from a young age.
Whilst I disagree with the media telling parents how to raise their children, personally I don’t think it’s worth risking exposing young children to potentially traumatic experiences.
People argue that scary fairy stories are harmless but where’s the evidence of this?
I own the online retailer Lullaby Babies and about a year and a half ago I set out to develop an alternative to the traditional fairy story model. The result was the CD ‘Snoozy’s Adventures in Lullaby Land’ which featured a collection of fairy tales and lullabies containing positive messages designed to delight instead of to scare https://www.lullaby-babies.co.uk/baby-lullaby-music/
I’d love to get your thoughts on this issue as it tends to be one that poalrises people.
