Tale to the rescue (part 3)

am a storyteller Psychologist Natalya Katsevich advises parents to read, for example, fairy tales A.V. Miklyaeva, “We Are Not Afraid of the Gray Wolf” P.V. Rumyantseva, “Path to your Self” and “Labyrinth of the soul” O.V. Khukhlaeva, a collection of fairy tales by N.A. Sakovich, “Psychotherapeutic fairy tales, fairy-tale therapy with a“ special ”child” TD Zinkevich-Evstigneeva, “Forest School” M.A. Panfilova. In the process of reading psychological tales, the child understands that he is not indifferent to his mother and that there will always be a way out of a difficult situation. The main thing is to think both adults and children how and where to find it. A fairy tale develops imagination, fantasy, because in it the child sees himself so strong and smart, so kind and fearless. By the way, parents themselves can learn to compose magical stories. So, in the book of Zaryana and Nina Nekrasov “How to find contact with a child? Fairytale opportunities! ”There are tips on how to compose fairy tales – heroic and informative, magical and everyday. The tale acts as a kind of safe “simulator of emotions”, allows you to expand the emotional world of the child. On the example of others, and not on his own, the child experiences a whole bunch of emotions – fear, pride, disappointment, resentment, joy, delight … How can a fairy tale help? In fairy tales, the child finds “tips” on how to behave in various life situations, how to cope with difficulties, and how to achieve a goal. For example, fairy-tale heroes often fall into a hopeless, at first glance, position, but ultimately get out of it with the help of friends or thanks to their own merits (mind, nobility, etc.). The tale acts as a kind of safe “simulator of emotions”, allows you to expand the emotional world of the child. By the example of others, and not by his own, the child experiences a whole bunch of emotions – fear, pride, disappointment, resentment, joy, delight … The child gets the opportunity to present himself in any fairy tale as any of the characters, to feel which of the “roles” is closer to him, in which he feels uncomfortable and how in the chosen role he is better to act. And sometimes you find that several characters live in it and thus get the first information about the diversity of your inner self. In addition, identifying himself with the characters, the child receives a unique opportunity to transform: from weak – to strong, from loser – to winner, from wickedness and bullying – to a good defender. The fairy tale draws scenarios of the relationship of people, convexly represents their “role” in life. The deliberate “one-dimensionality” of fairy-tale characters allows the child to further distinguish these “roles” in people in the real world. A fairy tale is the first set of moral rules and values ​​of life, filed in such a way that they do not need to be memorized and there is no need to argue with them. For example, a child learns from fairy tales that there is betrayal and devotion, hatred and love, good and evil in life, that overcoming difficulties can be defeated … As a rule, a child listens to his favorite fairy tales as if spellbound, of his own free will succumbing to a fabulous suggestion and taking the set of rules for granted.
