Being a part of a military family can be challenging at times, but Sesame Street is always there to lend a hand. Sesame Street for Military Families debuts new resources to support families and build community bonds.
Sesame Street for Military Families offers resources for military kids and families going through hard times. Families can find supportive material for numerous topics, including deployments, homecoming, long-term family caregiving, relocation, transitions in healthcare, and more.
Kids can navigate upcoming challenges with three new videos from Sesame Street. Each video includes bilingual digital resources and focuses on ways for families to connect with each other and their community. Kids can learn from watching their Sesame Street friends as they explore new challenges relating to the military experience.
Kids can cherish quality time by watching “Better Together,” a video that shows Abby and her family playing a fun game while running an errand. Families can learn about community support in “Solo Parenting” as Elmo’s teacher offers kindness to Elmo and his mom, Mae. Kids can discover how small efforts can lead to big rewards by watching Elmo and his family in “Making an Effort.”
Military kids can navigate difficult times with Elmo, Abby, and their families. Families can view supportive videos, articles, and other materials by visiting sesamestreetformilitaryfamilies.org.
