То the parents:
The main educational goal of this fairy tale is to instill in children that it is good to share with their parents whatever may be bothering them:
“Whatever worries you, share it with Mom and Dad. Life becomes easier that way!”
If we want children to share their feelings and experiences with us, we must also share ours with them - the best way is by implementing the family council. Thus, children will feel important and will appreciate that we discuss family matters with them.
“They all gathered in the living room, where the family usually met for the family council. This happened every time an important decision was to be made.”
“…it was the first time Fiffy had gathered the family council…It seems that….Fiffy is really growing up…”
Other notable goals:
to reinforce the notion that they are happy and very much loved (the child will always identify and empathize with the main character)
“Everyone knew Fiffy, the beautiful little brown-eyed doe. Fiffy was probably the happiest little doe in the world!”
“And so Fiffy grew in joy, happiness and love, with the caring attention of everyone.”
to teach the child to think in a positive way
“Her Mom always told her how important it is to notice the beautiful things in life and to be thankful for them, because that can make you truly happy!”
“What a beautiful morning! How lovely the sunshine looks on the green leaves of the trees! Today will be a wonderful day!”
to teach the child to feel gratitude
“Then, she would thank her Mom for the lovely breakfast…”
“At night, tired, but happy, she would lie down in her soft, fluffy bed and be thankful for every minute of her day! ”
to build the belief that the birth of a sibling is a happy event
“Fiffy had long dreamed of having someone at home to play with all day long, so she greeted the news with great joy. She jumped up and down, beaming with happiness.”
“Little Fiffy could not be happier. Now she was an older sister!”
to help include the child in taking care of the baby (thus the child will feel the need to participate in the raising of their younger brother or sister)
“Fiffy helped in every way, as she was told that older sisters must help for the coming of the baby.”
to help the child recognize the feelings they may experience after the birth of a sibling
“And do you love the baby?” the Violet Butterfly asked.
“Of course.… I just want my parents to hug me again, like when I was little!…Actually, now that I think about it, today Mom told me that I'm her sunshine and that she's proud of me! Maybe they still love me!”
“… because she felt they paid more attention to the baby…”
to understand that they are loved beyond measure and that parents will always love all their children equally
“We love you dearly,” they both said at the same time.
“Then they both hugged little Fiffy again, tightly. They told her that they loved her and the baby equally, in exactly the same way.”
- to feel calm and relaxed and fall asleep much more quickly and easily
It is best to hug the child while listening to the story to express your warmth, love and care. After you listen to the fairy tale a few times, work to discover the moral of the story together as you ask them the following questions: “What did Fiffy feel?…Does she love the baby?…What did the little doe learn?”…and so on. This will help you to find out what the child has been able to understand from the story (you exercise their memory) and will help them to reinforce the positive knowledge they have acquired after listening to the fairy tale.
