We've all heaed the stories of the Fairy tails, and princesses where they overcome advresity, find their prince, and live happily ever after.  Another mom has ut a negative spin on the happily ever after in Happily-Never-Afters: Disney Princesses 20 Years Later . http://www.ivillage.com/fallen-disney-princess/6-a-543748?nlcid=in|08-11-2013|&_mid=1788732&_rid=1788732.55000.141243   So which version do you think is better for girls.....the happily ever after or the other version??  Are Fairy tails good for girls or not???  What do you think??

Fairy tales are just that, fairy tales. I think that they are not harmful at all and it is fun to dream.

I agree with you.....dreaming about the future does make a girl think about what she wants in her prince.....and hopefully will make her more selective when it comes to a mate.  Every girl should be able to dream...and feel happy when her dreams come true!  They are stories....they usually have a good moral to them and I think that they are good things!
