Families Watch Together

1 Season

Sesame Street, in collaboration with partners and experts, has created special family programming to give children and the adults in their lives strategies for approaching sensitive topics. Subjects such as military deployment, combat-related injuries, economic insecurity, or the death of a parent can often be hard to talk about. Sesame Street recommends that you watch these programs before viewing with your child. Then, as you watch with your child, explore a topic by answering any questions he or she may have.

This free series contains videos that deal with issues children may face such as a parent in the military being deployed, bullying, death, etc. They are meant to be watched with a parent present and help children who may be too young to know how to express their feelings. They are meant to help start a dialogue through discussing the experiences of characters they are familiar with who are facing situations similar to their own.

My son is fascinated with Elmo, but he isn't really a fan of Sesame Street so I was iffy on getting this. Finally they had a promotion where you could download it for free and I decided to give it a try. Surprisingly it kept my sons attention the whole time and it is cute for whatever parent that is home with the child upon buying it. It's interactive and by that I mean Elmo talks to the audience and tries to have them interact with the characters of the show.

These episodes are really good at targeting specific issues that certain children face. They can be used in education, for medical information, and for at home when dealing with certain situations or talking about difficult issues. As someone who works in child development, I watched a few episodes with my child and was very pleased with the content. Young child will only see puppets but older children will understanding the meaning, which can make it great for families to watch together.

I downloaded this series from Amazon for free to entertain my daughter while I get housework done. Even though the situations do not pertain to our specific lives, I believe that exposure to different ways of living like military families and children with disabilities is good for my daughter so that she somewhat understands when one of her friends has to move away because they are in the military or she makes a friend who is a bit different from her. This is a great series.

My son loves Elmo and Sesame Street and when it's not on TV he likes to watch it on my phone so this works perfect for him to be able to get his Elmo fix whenever he wants it now. The videos load quickly and play nice.

Death has always been a touchy subject for a kids' show. Before I was born, Sesame Street first tackled the subject of death in 1983, when after Mr. Hooper's actor Will Lee passed away, the writers decided to tell the truth and kill off his character as well, resulting in the famous Emmy Award-winning Episode 1839, featuring a segment when Big Bird learns from the adults on the street that Mr. Hooper died and he "isn't coming back." Real emotion was used from the cast, even Caroll Spinney (the performer of Big Bird) had true emotion in his character. It proved so successful, they were able to do other episodes with difficult subjects, including marriage (when Maria and Luis got married in 1988), birth (when Maria gave birth to Gabi the following year) and adoption (twice, when Gordon and Maria adopted Miles, and Gina adopting a son years later.)

This is pretty much SesameWorkshop/CTW's second attempt at doing a presentation about death, and for me, it works equally as well. But instead of it being an existing human cast member, it was a Muppet that was written just for the segment: Elmo's late Uncle Jack. Elmo shows quite a bit of emotion, so does his father and cousin. It was a very beautiful production, and perfectly complements Episode 1839.

Now I know what you're thinking. Usually I don't tune into the newer Sesame Street stuff (I'm still a huge Muppet fan, and I still like the Sesame Street stuff made before 1993, when I stopped watching the show as a kid), but when I saw this was available for free, I just had to check it out. I'm typically not too keen on the modern Elmo (I prefer Elmo of the late 1980s and early 1990s, the version I grew up with) but here he handles the situation really well.

Always a fan of Sesame Street, I was very pleased when offered the chance to review this! I followed through accepting the offer for my grandchildren to get the opportunity to enjoy this. We all enjoyed watching this very much, and will continue to purchase Sesame Street products. I appreciate how they stay child-friendly, instead of exposing children to negativity as is often present in the "newer" modern-day children's programs - such as vivid violence, name-calling, etc. I also love the lessons that are always present in Sesame Street shows!!
