Sesame Street Takes on the Recession

Elmo to Face Consequences of Economic Downturn

Even the businesses lining Sesame Street aren't immune from the effects of a sinking economy. To help kids better understand the recession, Sesame Street will air a one hour special next week called Families Stand Together: Feeling Secure in Tough Times. The show stars Al Roker and Deborah Roberts, as well as personal finance and parenting experts to discuss strategies for maintaining children's well-being during hardships. When his mother loses her job, Elmo is forced to work through his family's issues.  Targeting two to eight-year-olds, the show also features real life families and their tips to surviving the obstacles they have overcome.
