"When children read fairy tales, they unconsciously project their good parts onto the hero or heroine of the story, and the bad parts onto the opposite, usually the witch," says Sheldon Cashdan, Ph.D., emeritus professor of psychology at UMass-Amherst and author of The Witch Must Die: The Hidden Meaning of Fairy Tales.The struggle between the good and the bad gets played out in fairy tales and every time the witch dies (which usually happens at the end of such tales), the child gains faith in his ability to conquer all the bad parts of himself.
