Throughout the whole tale a morality was connected through reality. When children are raised with chronic loss, they develop a sense of fear, a fear of being forgotten. Hansel and Gretellive the rest of their lives scarred and lost. This was all due to the fact that the adult’s in their lives lost the sense of morality. Lost the sense that their children are all they have and abandoning them is not the lesser of two evils. It is only the gateway to child depression and destroying whatever is left of their child’s adolescent lives. When Hansel is constantly disregarding the relevance of what had occurred, he was only trying to hold on to whatever is leftof him. For as Mario Balotelli exclaimed, “They say that abandonment is a wound that never heals. I say only that an abandoned child never forgets.”
