Children love The Real Tooth Fairies because of the magic and excitement she brings to each child that loses a tooth. Sometimes, losing a tooth is not that much fun for children. However, they have something to look forward to in the end because they know they will be visiting by the tooth fairy. When they place the tooth under their pillow and crawl into bed at night, as they are falling asleep they wonder all about the tooth fairy. The excitement of waking up and find money underneath their pillow is part of the whole process. They lay there and wonder what the tooth fairy looks like, how does she fly, what is she wearing, and how does she move so quietly about the room not to wake the children up. It’s truly magical in a child’s imagination.
Teaching children about the tooth fairy can also teach them about money. It’s an opportunity for children to not expect a lot of money, but teach them to be responsible with what little money they receive from the tooth fairy. As a child, many times we hope our parents load us up with dollars upon dollars, but it’s not about the money that’s under the pillow. It’s about the experience and what we can teach our children when they don’t know what to expect. Children have such a vivid imagination, it makes it possible to help them dream but also understand certain rules. Perhaps it’s saving their money until they can afford something they’ve wanted to buy for some time. Maybe it’s teaching them a new rule in the house that the parents are trying to teach. Whatever it may be, embrace the experience and the imagination of the tooth fairy.
The anticipation while they lay in bed trying to fall asleep is something they will always remember when they are older. They won’t remember the money they received, but they will remember the magical experience they have while waiting for the tooth fairy to visit them in the night. It opens up a whole new world to the imagination and allows children to dream of endless possibilities, which help pave the way for each day of a fulfilled life from adolescent to adult. These are memories that remain with a child their whole life and it something they will carry on to their children.
