Caring for Each Other
Your friends on Sesame Street are here to support you during the COVID-19 health crisis. We know that these are very stressful times; daily lives have been disrupted, and families everywhere are trying to create a new sense of normalcy. Children thrive with structure in their lives and they learn best through play--even in everyday moments like mealtimes and morning and evening routines. So our site is filled with content you can use all day long to spark playful learning, offer children comfort, and focus a bit on yourself, too. After all, it's important that we take care of ourselves, so that we can best care for our families.
Our resources aren’t prescriptions you have to follow—just ideas to help your family find ways to breathe, laugh, and play together. We'll be adding more in days and weeks to come, including new messages featuring your furry friends from Sesame Street—stay tuned and sign up for our newsletter for more! #CaringForEachOther
