Sesame Workshop Launches ‘Caring for Each Other’ Webpage

For 50 years, Sesame Workshop has provided support for children and families around some of the most challenging situations in their lives. Many of these situations create great uncertainty — and while we don’t always know what to expect, we know that our Sesame Street friends have the power to convey simple strategies and messages that help adults provide care and comfort to children — and prepare for whatever comes our way.

You can find the latest Sesame Street resources on www.SesameStreet.org/caring. The Caring for Each Other website is designed to offer families comfort and to spark playful learning activities. They include tips to support parents and caregivers during stressful times, creative ways to build playful learning moments, and a few Sesame Street stories to share together.
