Are you friends about the screen?

Tale characters in the movies, series, and movies can feed little kids the same feelings as if they were genuine, cool-blooded people. And this can have benefits.

If you have a kid in high school, you probably know exactly who your favorite fairytales are. Children are surprised to adhere to these characters, and they are treated like flesh and blood, characters. Previous research has shown that children are more than just "one-dimensional" characters who appear and disappear from the screen or the movie screen. The characters are on the games and clothes, appear on the playgrounds, playhouses and events, and control them in the digital games as well. Children's everyday life and these characters are completely connected. No wonder the kids start to come to them, though, the relationship is emotionally one-sided (so-called peasant association).The children also see fairy tales as friendly

The peasant social relationship can be quite strong and can affect other parts of children's lives. For example, in a 2013 study, 18-21-month-olds had to solve simple math problems, either with unknown or familiar games (such as a fairytale). It was found that the little ones whom the familiar actor "helped" outperformed in the tests. According to experts, these relationships could be exploited, for example, for educational purposes, or even to learn the social rules. However, it is very important that what the child sees is positive. The little ones can feel "friendly" to the tales, be emotionally attached to them, and look like them like real friends (via).You may also be interested in:
