I got to thinking, that listening to fairy tales before bed may have contributed to some of my childhood fears. If you look at the plots in most of these tales ~ you'll see some horrible tragedy unfolding. For example Jack & Jill? Humpty Dumpty? Little Red Riding-hood? It sets us up thinking this world is a dangerous and scary place. I mean, we are going to find that out soon enough ~ why scare us as kids?
