Bringing hope and resilience to children affected by parental addiction

Play Media
Addiction is often seen as a ‘grown-up’ issue, but it impacts children in ways that aren’t always visible. Having a parent battling addiction can be one of the most isolating and stressful situations young children and their families face, which is why our new resources are designed to break down the stigma of parental addiction and help children build hope for the future—all with the help of Karli, a 6 ½ year old Sesame Street Muppet whose mom is battling addiction. The resources, including videos, storybooks, and professional development materials, are freely available in English and Spanish on www.SesameStreetinCommunities.org.
