Why do the dirtier "Grimm version" of fairy tales serve as better teaching tools than the Disney or "Clean" versions of fairy tales?

    @unicornpoopcookies Don't know if this is too late or not for your paper, but the clean versions as most people know, remove anything too dark. This, to them, included anything remotely involving death or any more 'mature' subjects. Of course the classic example for this is Little Red Riding Hood, with really the only difference being that she died in the original. Without her dying, the story served no purpose to teach. It was just a story. But with her death, it was a basic story to teach kids not to go out at night. Basically, they removed the consequences, which unintentionally removed the purpose as well.
