Fable is a kind of literature necessary for children, enriching their world of dreams. Therefore, it bears great significance for children. It is a certain fact that, regarding the education of children there is a necessity to examine the items in some fables. Especially, according to this perspective, the Fables of Grimm Brothers have to be reexamined and they need to be changed. It is because the people in these fables are burnt in a fire, fingers are cat, eyes are excauated. At the some time, some games are played with human bones, people are thrown into wells full of poisonous snakes and are put completely nackedly into barrels with sharp nails, and are also put into hot oil, or are killed in the most violent ways. And this is presented as an ordinary happening. The aim of this work is to make families more selective by drawing their attention to such fables. In this way, families will act more carefully in choosing the appropriate fabl efor their children they will direct themselves to fables that don't contain violence and are assistant to achieve positive behaviour on children.
