Sesame Street Workshop: Little Children, Big Challenges: Incarceration 

Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street, unveiled its newest, bilingual (English/Spanish) initiativeLittle Children, Big Challenges: Incarceration. The new initiative has designed some tools to help caregivers with young children (ages 3–8) navigate some of the transitions and challenges that a parent's incarceration can bring and help the children develop skills for resilience.
Sesame workshop also sees service providers as playing an important role in helping families cope with the incarceration of a loved one. The Little Children, Big Challenges: Incarceration initiative has created resources specifically for service providers to help them guide the caregivers and children through the changes they encounter.
Little Children, Big Challenges: Incarceration is designed to:

  • support, comfort, and reduce anxiety, sadness, and confusion that young children may experience during the incarceration of a parent

  • provide at-home caregivers with strategies, tips, and age-appropriate language they can use to help communicate with their children about incarceration

  • inform incarcerated parents themselves that they can parent from anywhere, and provide them with simple parenting tips highlighting the importance of communication

The Little Children, Big Challenges: Incarceration initiative components include:



  • Multimedia resource kits

  • Sesame Street DVD featuring a Muppet story, live-action films showcasing real children and their families, and an animated short film 

  • Guide for parents and caregivers

  • Children’s storybook

  • Sesame Street: Incarceration app for adults to use on tablets and phones

  • Online toolkit with downloadable versions of all materials

  • Tip sheet for incarcerated parents

  • Training webinars for service providers on how to use the resources with children and families

  • A playlist of featured videos from the initiative
