Default Sesame Street addresses opioid crisis as Muppet's mother battles addiction

"Sesame Street" addresses opioid crisis as Muppet's mother battles addiction

"Sesame Street" is teaching kids how to talk about an especially difficult topic — the opioid crisis. In a series of new segments, Muppet Karli reveals she's been living in foster care because her mother is battling addiction.

Karli, a six-year-old yellow-haired Muppet introduced in May, lives with her foster parents, Dalia and Clem. She will tell her backstory in online-only segments as part of the "Sesame Street in Communities" initiative, Sesame Workshop announced Wednesday.

"In new videos and other content, favorite 'Sesame Street' characters like Elmo and Abby Cadabby learn what Karli is going through and help their friend to cope," Sesame Workshop said in a press release.

Between this and their unit/storyline on incarceration, Sesame Street producers have really stepped up to the plate and offered a valuable tool to our community. Talking to kids about our grown issues is hard, but they're not blind to it. They know something is wrong, why not break it down to a level that helps them feel more secure about their role in it?

Good on them.

Agree Miamac.
I saw this on fb yesterday and liked and commented that as sad as it is, this is good to have for young people.

I think it is a brilliant idea. Kids need to know they are not alone. Parents need help with communicating difficult issues. It is not something that goes away because you ignore it.
