Sesame Street, “talk, listen, connect” uses popular puppet characters to help military families with deployment challenges.

by | Feb 26, 2012

Go to the above website at Sesame Street Workshop and check out how puppets are educating military families on the challenges of extended deployments and returning combat veterans who transition back to civilian life. I can say from my own experience as a WWII & Korean War child challenged with my Dad’s confusing and angry behaviors, that this sort of program would have made a difference in understanding more clearly what was happening. None of this was available, so my family spent years afraid and alone, and were finally affected with the same challenges as adults.  I write passionately and with healing value regarding this subject in my book.

The Sesame Street Workshop DVD packets, in English and Spanish, may be available at your local VA offices.
