This demonstrates that although she had an obstacle she could overcome it by seeking help from someone else. This shows children that there is always someone willing enough to help them prevail over their problem to finding happiness.

In response to this, the fairy godmother helps the damsel escape her stepmother, and once she does, the prince and the damsel live happily ever after. But, In Henry James’s novel Washington Square, this is not the case.
After the love potion was inserted into Titania’s eyes by Oberon, Oberon told puck about his plan which worked “I then did ask for her her changeling child, / Which straight she gave me, and her fairy sent” (4.1.57-8).

Before giving the Indian changeling boy to Oberon, she had fallen in love with Bottom at first sight who has a donkey head. Just falling in love with a donkey-headed man is already ludicrous showing that she has lost her sanity. This love makes her recklessly give him all the special treatment from the fairies just to make him stay.
