Sesame Workshop is also offering these free apps for families of divorce, military families, and families dealing with issues surrounding incarceration. The apps offer helpful advice to parents and caregivers, as well as interactive storybooks and activities to be shared with affected children.
The Sesame Street: Divorce app provides parents and caregivers with tools to help children ages 2-8 cope with the many transitions related to divorce or separation.
Features include: articles with tips and strategies for providing reassurance and comfort; videos featuring real families talking about their experiences, and Abby Cadabby as she talks with her Sesame Street friends about her own parents’ divorce; “Conversation Starters” providing age-appropriate language you can use to start a discussion with your children about feelings and changes; interactive tools including the “Face Maker” and “Coloring Pages,” which you can use together with your children to help them express their emotions about specific topics; and additional support and educational resources.
We recommend you use the tools and watch the videos before sharing them with your children, so that you can choose what is most relevant and helpful for your family. Resources in this app are part of Sesame Street’s “Little Children, Big Challenges: Divorce” initiative. You can access other Sesame Street divorce materials online, at http://sesamestreet.org/divorce.
The Sesame Street for Military Families app puts all of Sesame’s bilingual (English & Spanish) resources for military families right in your pocket!
Now you can use your mobile device to access engaging videos, articles, storybooks, parent guides, and more to help you support your preschool and school-aged children as they encounter transitions common to military families.
Because of the sensitive topics in this app, we highly recommend that a parent or guardian previews the materials before co-viewing with a child.

We recommend that you watch the videos in the app before sharing them with your children so that you can choose what is most relevant and helpful for your family.
