7. We live in alienated times where the main problem is lack of time. Parents, especially in families where both parents build their careers, simply don't have enough time to be with their kids.
Many families in most developed countries can find only few minutes (!) per day for so important thing as building family bonds. With so little time it is so much more important to spend it wise. And what can be more genuine than storytelling with optional talk after the story ends? Fairy tales are great to make deep and powerful bonds for connecting generations.
With storytelling and talking about outcome of the fairy tale we can build solid cornerstones for decades of quality communication!
8. Sense of community is social, sociological and psychological concept, an invisible glue which holds together a lot of individuals and connect them in powerful unity where one plus one makes more than two. Sharing fairy tales and similar stories through different circles of the society we can feel how many similarities we really have no matter how different we look to each other at first sight.
European countries like Italy or Germany were build from many small entities with a help of fairy tales collectors!
