Sesame Street for Military Families: Transitions

When parents transition, so do kids. And Sesame Workshop now has a new resource to support active-duty military and veteran families with kids ages 2 to 5 as they transition from military to civilian life. This new storybook and set of parent tips can make starting conversations with your children easier, allowing you to discuss the upcoming changes and ease their concerns.

The kit includes:

  • My Story, My Big Adventure: Grab a pencil or some crayons and go through this activity book with your child. You'll find great topics to discuss together, like fun ways to find friends in a new school.
  • Parent tip sheets: Use these tips for talking with your kids about their feelings and helping them cope with the changes. The sheets include activities to boost kids' confidence levels.
  • The Adventure Campaign: Sign up for this eNewsletter that puts the Sesame Street family on the journey with your family through cool videos and other resources.

Get your copy of these free resources designed with input from transitioning service members and their families. And check out other resources for military families available through Sesame Workshop.
