Offering Comfort - During tough times—both everyday challenges and more serious experiences—support from caring adults can offer children comfort and reassurance. But sometimes we need help showing we care in ways that help kids really feel it. It can help to reflect on how love was expressed to us growing up, so we can make choices about how to express it to our children now.

Sesame Street | Offering Comfort

Mister Rogers let us know it was okay to be mad or sad or scared. What mattered most is what we do with our feelings. He encouraged us to talk about them, to find constructive ways to express them and to develop that good feeling of control.

In this Neighborhood, feelings aren’t to be ignored or dismissed. Instead, they’re acknowledged, talked about and played about.
