Moral Stories Help in the Overall Development of a Child

Moral Stories Help in the Overall Development of a Child

Remember those little tales you'd hear as a child...the ones that taught you a lesson? Stories like "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" and "The Ugly Duckling" have been recycled for decades...and for good reason! Fables like these help in the overall development of children. They instill a sense of morality and help to shape young brains into seeing the difference between right and wrong, and the importance of empathy. Here's how to incorporate the best moral stories into your kiddos lives, and set them up for a lifetime of kindness.

Take advantage of your child's imagination

The imagination of a child is simply extraordinary. Nothing is impossible to kids, and that's what makes it easier for them to relate to the characters in their favorite stories (especially toys and animals). Now is a great time to take advantage of this! Choose books that are fun and focus on fantasy. You may find yourself re-discovering the magic of childhood. 

Be Creative

When you're looking for great stories and books, think outside of the box! The bookstore and library is a starting point, of course, but you can find good resources in other places too. Check out online reading apps and blogs. And use your imagination! Nothing is too outlandish for a child. Re-discover your youthful side and create a unique story you'll both cherish.

Choose stories they love

You may find that reading the same book over and over again is exhausting, but your kiddos don't mind! In fact, choosing stories that your child loves to hear repeatedly actually helps with brain development. The repetition will reinforce the importance of these life lessons, and morality, and translate into real life actions as they grow.  

Talk about the lessons you learn

The most important part about reading anything is having a discussion with your child during (and after) the story. Talk about the heroes, the villains, the lessons you see, the main ideas. Even young children can benefit from a conversation on morality, kindness, and decision making. 

What are your favorite books to enjoy with your kiddos? We'd love to hear in the comments section. Share and spread the love!
