    How do you feel Sesame Street helps teach compassion?

    I grew up watching Sesame Street and now that God bless me to be a mom, I want my little baby that grows with happiness, humor, kindness, respect and compassions for others, ALL THESE is what Sesame Street can bring to our lives!

    Seame Street has characters and songs that give examples of love and compassion. Like Oscar the Grouch, he taught me “not to judge a book by its cover”, he was mad always, but when somebody need help he always was there. He is a beautiful example of love and compassion!

    Songs like: Kermit’s “It’s Not Easy Being Green or “Everyone Makes Mistakes” by Big Bird, are songs that moves feelings, make us have a reflection, feel compassion for certain situations and let our kids and us with love in our souls!

    Daily I can see that Sesame Street helps educate children, gives good examples and teaches lessons that will enrich our children’s hearts and minds!

    Compassion is a human emotion and Sesame Street activates the button to feel the desire to help and alleviate another’s suffering!

    I think it is awesome what Sesame Street can do in our kids hearts! We need a better world, we need to help others and with sesame Street our kids can learn that!

    We need this kind of TV show in our lives!

    We are huge sesame street fans! The characters in the show are always helping each other out, taking care of one another and (my favorite) talking about taking care of our planet. When someone is having a down day on the show or needs help, the characters jump into action to help out. It is just a great reinforcement for our kids on how and why we should be kind to others and respect their feelings!

    As for a charity – this is a hard one. I am going to go with the Ronald McDonald House.

    Sesame Street teaches kids more then just compasion. They teach kids to be friends with everyone ( even if they are a little monster). To Love, help, support and learn from everyone. Every one that comes into your life makes a differanc to you,they teach you something, and it doesnt just stop after watching Sesame Street. You keep what you learn in your heart and pass it on to others.
    Please give FOUR tickets to “When Elmo Grows Up” to a luck family in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters

    I would love to take my younger kids to see the Live Sesame Street in NYC. I love that Sesame Street still continues to teach children good values and character, as it did when I was a young child. I believe it has a very effective approach in teaching our kids not only their numbers and abc’s but also whats right and wrong. They learn best through example, so when they see Big Bird giving a friend a hug when he’s sad, they know they should be there for their friends too. If I win, I will donate tickets to the Big Brothers/Big Sisters organization.

    *****Ok I thought I posted this already but I didn’t see it in the comments! When I first commented I didn’t realize we had to pick between the two charities that you mentioned! Thought we just had to pick one! Ooops!! So the charity I would choose is the big brothers/big sisters!!

    Sesame Street was a staple in my house growing up, and now its an integral part of my daughter’s life. She is a huge fan of Elmo and Oscar the Grouch. Sesame Street is the only TV show that my daughter is interested in (she’s almost 3).

    The way the characters and humans interact with each other teaches compassion. Although they may show conflict, the resolution to that conflict is postive. In addition, they show kids and adults that have various afflictions/handicaps, and presents them as regular folks, capable of all sorts of wonderful things. Its good to see everyone incorporated.

    My choice for charity would be Make a Wish Foundation. However, any charity you deem worthwhile is more than acceptable.

    PS I signed up for RSS feed…glad I can check more often now!

    Sesame Street helps teach compassion by having them all get along no matter if they’re a human or if they’re furry. They are all different colors yet they are all friends! This shows kids we’re all the same and when someone is hurting, sad, etc, we should help them!

    I remember that there was one episode that was dealing with death. That is a pretty tough thing to teach kids about and get them to understand. Sesame Street did a great job in doing that.

    My family would love to see this show. I watched it when i was younger and now my daughter watches it now. They have always shown so many lessons and how it is important to be kind and to share. They do a great job in bringing all of the characters to life and giving them personality along with feelings.

    we even have sesame street books at home too, my favorite is red or blue, i like you. this book is great because there are so many people that judge you by your outside appearance and it teaches you that you shouldnt.

    my family would totally really love to go see Sesame Street live at Madison Square Garden. My husband is totally obsessed with every detail of sesame street, and my daughter absolutely loves the show.

    Sesame Street teaches compassion by having negative situations they encounter solved in a positive way. They are also always sharing what they have and helping others!

    In an age where children are exposed to so much violence in their programming it’s nice to know we can rely on Sesame Street to help educate by showing traits such as compassion in their programs. Their characters, even when they do wrong, learn from their experiences and show compassion to one another through forgiveness amongst other things. Long may it continue.

    I would give the others to Big Brothers/Big Sisters.

    Sesame Street helps me teach compassion because it normalizes differences–different colors, nationalities, abilities, etc. are neatly streamlined into the program without being pointed out. Therefore, my daughter learns that everyone should be accepted as a full person, rather than defined by their differences.

    REALLY ??? who can teach compassion? Sesame Street!
    Who can love Oscar, a green monster, and a Huge Big Bird? The message IS LOVE EVERYONE, and if anyone has a problem help them, and make them feel better about themselves and there troubles. Who teaches that better than all the characters’ on Sesame Street.
    I had 12 hours “taped” on vhs for my Children, and if they were bored or out of control, I’d pop in a tape and all was good. I’m now introducing my Grand daughter to them and I DVR all the shows. Compassion,,, I love ELmo.
