New Sesame Street Muppet: Dad is In Jail June 20, 2013

If this isn’t a sign of the times…  Sesame Street recently unveiled a new initiative called “Little Children, Big Challenges,” that attempts to help kids deal with modern life.  Their most recent muppet addition is a character whose dad is in prison.

Slate wrote, “In the latest move toward that goal, the popular children’s program created an online toolkit, titled “Little Children, Big Challenges: Incarceration,” for those struggling to raise a child who has an incarcerated parent.”
