Today Show: Sibling Aggression Vs Bullying At School
A new study shows that 32% of kids reported being bullied by a sibling. This means verbal, physical, taunting, and destruction of property. The Journal of Pediatrics is shining light on family bullying, while most studies focus on bullying outside the home. Dr Nancy Snyderman said that anxiety, depression and feelings of inadequacy are the same from bullying in the home as bullying in school. She told parents that if they won’t accept bullying from a neighbor, don’t let it happen under your own roof.
Today: Sesame Street Brings Father’s Day to Jail
The characters on Sesame Street help kids learn about sharing, caring and the importance of family. On Father’s Day, they brought a sunny day to families at Riker’s Island Correctional Facility. One little boy hadn’t seen his father in six months, but with his favorite characters there, father and son shared a day of bonding, coloring, and joy that can never be taken away from them.
Sesame Street workshops cover topics like hunger, divorce and military deployment. Now, Alex is the first muppet on the block with a parent in jail. When a muppet on Sesame Street is telling a relatable story to kids, it’s like coming from another kid. One in 28 kids in the U.S. have a parent behind bars, which is more than the number of kids with a parent deployed. Alex the muppet is not a permanent part of Sesame Street, but his videos are available online for parents and kids.
