Fairytales too scary for modern children, say parents

 

 

TOP TEN FAIRYTALES NO LONGER READ TO CHILDREN

 

1. Hansel and Gretel - Details two kids abandoned in the forest and likely to

scare young children

 

2. Jack and the Beanstalk - Deemed too 'unrealistic'.

 

3. Gingerbread Man - Would be uncomfortable explaining gingerbread man gets

eaten by a fox

 

4. Little Red Riding Hood - Deemed unsuitable by parents who have to explain a

young girl's grandmother has been eaten by a wolf.

 

5. Snow White and the Seven Dwarves - the term dwarves was found to be

inappropriate

 

6. Cinderella - Story about a young girl doing all the housework was outdated.

 

7.Rapunzel - Parents were worried about the focus on a young girl being

kidnapped.

 

8.Rumplestiltskin - Wouldn't be happy reading about executions and kidnapping

 

9.Goldilocks and the Three Bears - Sends the wrong messages about stealing

 

 

10.Queen Bee - Inappropriate as the story has a character called Simpleton

How about the fairytales too scary for adults:

1. Obamacare

2. Recent IRS activities

3. Possible war in Syria

4. FIAT currency

5. Fed Reserves acting without any oversight

(I am already diving under the blanket and cannot continue to count more tales even though I know that they exist)

According to George Carlin;

That was childrens first introduction to drug use.

Old King Cole was a merry old soul', and a merry old soul was he,

He called for his "pipe" & called for his "Bowl"

I guess we know about old King Cole ( He wanted to get high, and listen to the fiddlers)

They are supposed to be scary. Fairy tales were used, by parents, to scare their children into behaving. It's no different than a mother today telling her kid, "If you don't behave that policeman is going to arrest you".

 

I don't recognize "Queen Bee", by the way. What's that story about?

 

 

I, myself, always liked the political correctness of Little Black Sambo. This was considered so offensive to "Afro-Americans" that, first they changed it to "Little BRAVE Sambo", and then they did away with the story entirely. But, since Sambo was chased by TIGERS, it has nothing to do with Africa.

That has got to be the biggest pile of steaming, odoriferous, bull crap that I have ever heard.

 

Our grandkids arrive tomorrow for three days and I will try to read aloud as many of them as I can find for them! This PC $h!t has to stop!

Yeah, what he said. They were meant to teach a lesson to the listener. Or at least that's what I've always heard...

Do you think children, or at least "normal" children don't enjoy being told scary stories. What the heck do they think ghost stories are all about.

 

Me thinks there is an overdose of stupid in some folks.

Remember Sambo's Pancakes? They are gone too.

Yeah, someone got their panties in a wad over "Little Black Sambo" being chased around a tree by a BENGAL Tiger, which mostly come from India.

 

The Bengal tiger is found primarily in India with smaller populations in Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, China and Burma. Notice the lack of the Continent of Africa?
I liked Tiger Butter too.
