Sesame Street: Is “D” for Divorce?
Sesame Street often handles tough topics and now they are going to try to teach children about divorce. This latest episode will air only in an online series. “Sesame Street has never shied away from taking on tough topics. If it’s a challenge young children face in their lives, it’s a challenge Sesame Street would like to help them weather,” a blog posted on the Sesame Street website said.
Millions of young children have to deal with divorce in their own families and many of these youngsters are quite traumatized when one parent leaves. The show is hoping this will help youngsters understand what is happening. Abby Cadabby, Elmo and Rosita will have a presence on this special episode which will be targetted to specific demographics.
