Sesame Street Resources for Military Children.
Once again, the Sesame Workshop has developed a new collection of resources for military families with children. This new program is designed to help children stay connected with their loved ones away from home, and also teach those skills that sometimes parents are not able to engage in.
In the past the Sesame Street workshop has offered programs geared towards younger, preschool aged children. This program is now geared and focused towards older children. The “Military Families Near and Far” program includes resources for school-aged children. The programs offers resources such as, a bilingual website and a mobile application to help encourage children in expressing any emotions and feelings they have while living the military life and transitioning from difficult situations.
An important factor in creating this program was to ensure that the program reached out to older children. CEO and president of the Sesame Workshop, Melvin Ming states that “One size does not fit all. Children learn best when the message is age-appropriate.”
The Sesame Workshop has other products available to military families and children, check out their website www.sesameworkshop.org/initiatives/emotion/tlc for more “Talk Listen Connect” products.
