Being in a new place is hard, and it will take time to feel a sense of belonging. But reassurance, family togetherness, curiosity, and confidence can help. This workshop offers ideas to help families navigate uncertainty and gain a sense of safety and security wherever they are—even a “for now” home.

    A Little Help From My Furry Friends


    Children can take comfort from their friends on Sesame Street, too! In this interactive game, Muppets suggest and demonstrate important strategies to use in difficult moments. Invite children to choose a Muppet to help them and watch what he or she does in the video. After watching the video—or anytime at all—help children use that strategy in their own lives. You might use this as another opportunity to connect with your child’s loved ones. Invite friends and family to send a video of them telling a funny joke or doing a silly dance. Watch the videos when one of you needs a little pick-me-up.
