At some point in the last few years, millennial parents decided to re-write classic fairy tales when we weren't paying attention.

The classic stories that we all grew up with, know and love has been altered to shelter kids born in the "I'm a winner no matter what" generation. According to an article on Music Mag Pie, many parents are admitting to fudging crucial plot points in fairy tales to fit a more child-friendly narrative.

Some of the many stories that don't fit the safe criteria for new parents include Cinderella, Pinnochio, Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs and The Ugly Ducking.

"When my kid asks why the other ducks are being so mean to the ugly duckling it's hard for me to explain that it's acceptable even if it is just a story."

Many parents argue that Sleeping Beauty never consented when the prince kissed her. 2018 is the perfect time for Prince Phillip to check his privilege at the door. Another group of parents thinks that Pinnochio promotes lying.

Here are some stories that are found to be the most controversial:

  • Little Red Riding Hood
  • The Gingerbread Man
  • Hansel and Gretel
  • The Ugly Duckling
  • Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
  • Beauty and the Beast
  • Cinderella
  • The Three Little Pigs
  • Pinocchio
  • Little Red Riding Hood
  • Sleeping Beauty
  • The Frog Prince
  • Rapunzel

Yes, the stories are dated, but we can't forget that they are about overcoming adversity. The messages are still relevant.

What do you think? Should we be tampering with the classics?
