The pandemic combined with the cold keep us locked inside our homes. Even with these conditions, as parents we are constantly looking for new ways to offer new and proper stimuli to our children, in order to enhance their development. So what better way than to spend quality time with our little ones reading their favorite fairy tales? Fairy tales help children to understand other people's feelings more deeply, thus helping them to gain empathy. Fairy tales show children how to solve their problems, even if they do not realize it. They teach them how to cope with difficult situations, show children what it means to have mental strength and find solutions to difficulties and problems that will inevitably arise before them.
Also, we must not forget that fairy tales approach existential dilemmas that children have, helping them to overcome their fears. Our children grow up very quickly and it is very likely that we will soon miss their hugs. By reading their books while we have them in our arms, we enjoy their caresses and strengthen the relationship between us, having fun.
