少儿故事: 太吓人的童话故事是否合适讲

作者:上海火学网  发布时间:2013-07-19  来源:上海火学网

  Traditional fairytales are being ditched by parents because they are too scary for their young children, a study found.

  一项研究发现,父母们开始摒弃传统的童话故事,因为它们对年幼的孩子来说太吓人。

  Research revealed one in five parents has scrapped old classics such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and Rapunzel in favour of more modern books.

  调查发现,五分之一的父母已经抛弃了《白雪公主和七个小矮人》、《长发姑娘》等古老的经典童话,转而选择现代童话故事。

  One third of parents said their children have been left in tears after hearing the gruesome details of Little Red Riding Hood.

  三分之一的父母说,他们的孩子在听到《小红帽》中阴森恐怖的情节后被吓哭了。

  And nearly half of mothers and fathers refuse to read Rumplestiltskin to their kids as the themes of the story are kidnapping and execution.

  近半数的父母们不愿给孩子念童话故事《纺线姑娘》,因为故事的主题是绑架和处决。

  Similarly, Goldilocks and the Three Bears was also a tale likely to be left on the book shelf as parents felt it condones stealing.

  同样,《金发姑娘和三只熊》也很可能被遗弃在书架上,因为父母们觉得宽恕偷窃是不对的。

  The survey of 2,000 adults was commissioned to mark the launch of the hit US drama GRIMM, which starts tonight at 9pm on Watch, and sees six gritty episodes based on traditionalfairytales.

  这一调查涵盖了2000名成人。开展该调查是为了纪念美国热门电视剧《格林》今晚9点在Watch首播,人们将看到6集根据传统童话故事改编的情节大胆的电视剧。

  The poll found a quarter of parents polled wouldn't consider reading a fairytale to their child until they had reached the age of five, as they prompt too many awkward questions from theiroffspring.

  调查发现,接受调查的父母有四分之一称在孩子五岁前不会考虑给孩子念童话故事,因为孩子听了这些故事会提太多让人尴尬的问题。

  And 52 percent of the parents said Cinderella didn't send a good message to their children as it portrays a young woman doing housework all day.

  52%的父母说,灰姑娘给孩子传递了不良信息,因为该童话描绘了一个成天做家务的年轻姑娘。

  Steve Hornsey, General Manager of Watch, said: "Bedtime stories are supposed to soothechildren and send them off to sleep soundly.

  Watch的总经理斯蒂夫•霍恩西说:“睡前故事本应让孩子平静下来,让他们进入甜蜜梦乡的。

  "But as we see in GRIMM, fairytales can be dark and dramatic tales so it's understandable that parents worry about reading them to young children.

  “但就像我们在《格林》中看到的,童话可以是阴森、戏剧化的故事,所以可以理解父母会对给小孩念这种故事感到担心。

  "As adults we can see the innocence in fairytales, but a five year old with an over active imagination could take things too literally.

  “作为成人,我们可以看到童话里包含的纯真,但一个想象力十分活跃的五岁小孩则会太把故事当真。

  "Despite the dark nature of classic fairytales, as we see in GRIMM, good will triumph over evil and there is always a moral to the story."

  “尽管像我们在《格林》中看到的,经典童话故事包含阴暗的本质,但是善良最终会战胜邪恶,而且每个故事都有道德寓意。”

  The study also found two thirds of mums and dads try to avoid stories which might give their children nightmares.

  研究还发现,三分之二的父母尽量避开会让孩子做恶梦的故事。

  However half of parents said traditional tales are more likely to have a strong moral message than a lot of modern kids' books, such as The Gruffalo, The Hungary Caterpillar and the Mr Men books.

  不过,半数父母认为,传统童话故事相对于《咕噜牛》、《匈牙利毛毛虫》、《奇先生妙小姐》等很多现代儿童图书能更有力地传递道德信息。

  TOP TEN FAIRYTALES NO LONGER READ TO CHILDREN

  不再给孩子念的十大童话故事:

  1. Hansel and Gretel — Details two kids abandoned in the forest and likely to scare young children

  1. 《汉斯和格蕾特》——两个小孩被遗弃在森林里的情节会吓到年幼的孩子。

  2. Jack and the Beanstalk — Deemed too 'unrealistic'.

  2. 《杰克与豆茎》——被认为“太脱离现实”。

  3. Gingerbread Man — Would be uncomfortable explaining gingerbread man gets eaten by a fox

  3. 《姜饼人》——将难以解释姜饼人被狐狸吃掉的情节。

  4. Little Red Riding Hood — Deemed unsuitable by parents who have to explain a young girl's grandmother has been eaten by a wolf.

  4. 《小红帽》——被认为不合适是因为父母不得不解释小姑娘的祖母被狼吃掉。

  5. Snow White and the Seven Dwarves — the term dwarves was found to be inappropriate

  5. 《白雪公主和七个小矮人》——“矮人”一词被认为不合适。

  6. Cinderella — Story about a young girl doing all the housework was outdated.

  6. 《灰姑娘》——故事里描述的年轻姑娘做所有家务活已经过时了。

  7. Rapunzel — Parents were worried about the focus on a young girl being kidnapped.

  7. 《长发姑娘》——小姑娘被绑架的主题让父母担心。

  8. Rumplestiltskin — Wouldn't be happy reading about executions and kidnapping

  8. 《纺线姑娘》——念到执行死刑和绑架的情节让人感到不快。

  9. Goldilocks and the Three Bears — Sends the wrong messages about stealing

  9. 《金发姑娘和三只熊》——传递了关于偷窃的错误信息。

  10. Queen Bee — Inappropriate as the story has a character called Simpleton.

  10. 《蜜蜂王后》——这一故事不合适是因为有个人物名叫“傻瓜”。

  家长在为孩子选择少儿读物时不能盲目跟风,而应该根据孩子的自身需求来选择读物,经典虽然经典,但是读多了也有害无益。更多少儿英语咨询课程请点击>>
