“We know children and families everywhere are struggling as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. Together with Viatris, we are offering families strategies to cope with today’s challenges and foster emotional wellbeing long into the future,” said Sherrie Westin, president of social impact and philanthropy at Sesame Workshop. “As we head into the holidays with so many routines upended, we want to help children and their caregivers manage big feelings and spend quality time with each other, even when apart.”
The resources are a part of Sesame Workshop's ongoing Caring for Each Other initiative, which launched at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic to help families respond to uncertainty at this time. The page, SesameStreet.org/caring, is updated regularly to help families manage anxiety, create routines, foster playful learning at home, and stay physically and mentally healthy as the pandemic continues to evolve.
