|Boy, 7 years old: "The ghosts and zombies".|
In the science, there is the concept of a «good risk» or a «good fear». «The good risk » enables the child to feel any extreme emotions within the limits of social experience when nothing threatens the life and the health of a small person. Fairy tales, in which there are situations that excite the child (even if the child does not discuss them with adults), ― is one of the best assistants in the residing and overcoming of the fear of something. Certainly, each fairy tale reflects its historical time, but if we speak of modernity, such fears of modern children as the fear of to be lost and the fear of loneliness, are reflected in the fairy tale "Little Tom Thumb", the fear of “strangers” is reflected in the fairy tales about Baba Yaga, the fear of death is reflected in the horrors about zombies. Except it, many fairy tales give the children the hope that they can cope with the most difficult situations.
