I was one of those kids that wasn’t scared by fairytales books or movies. I was watching The Wizard of Oz when I was three years old. If you think your kid is going to have nightmares if you read it as a bedtime story then don’t read it at night! It is simple, and if the kid is worried talk to them. Instead of a Fairytale why don’t we throw on Monsters Inc. so when they go to bed they will be watching the closet all night instead of sleeping. There are verius versions of the same stories. Grandma doesn’t always get eaten, in one the wolf puts her in the closet. Parents are overprotective these days.
