Some of you may recall the Sesame Street episode that featured the monsters reactions to the Death of Mr. Hooper from several years ago. It had a profound impact on many children and parents helped by the fact it was aired on Thanksgiving Day. The creators behind Sesame Street have decided to revisit the topic in a nighttime special called "When Families Grieve." The episode airs Wednesday night on PBS stations (check local listings).
I am reminded of a quote from the Comfort Zone Camp video: "I thought I was the only kid who had a parent who had died." This episode may help a lot of kids realize they are not alone.
