Fairy Tales Weren’t Originally Intended for Kids

Fairy Tales have been around for centuries, and to read ones from the past, you may be surprised by how dark they can be.  I’ve found this recently as I’ve read a collection of “Grimm’s Fairy Tales” aloud to my 7 and 9-year-olds. Still, one expert, in this piece from Salon, argues that Disney has only dumbed down these stories by diluting their true meaning when bringing them to the big screen with kids in mind.  See which Fairy Tale movies he likes, and which ones he finds “absurd.”Do you agree?
