All of our neighborhoods should be places of kindness, empathy, and understanding where families and children can safely thrive.
Fred Rogers Productions, the creators of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and Odd Squad, supports our neighbors in the Black community, against all manner of racism, violence, and discrimination.
To help families during these turbulent times, we’ve curated activities and resources, such as Draw Your Feelings (English/Español), Encouraging Pretend Play (English/Español), and Helping Children Cope with Tragic Events in the News (English/Español) that provide children with an outlet to express their feelings.
Children are never too young to learn about racism. Dr. Aisha White, director of the P.R.I.D.E. Program at the University of Pittsburgh and a consultant on Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, recently contributed an article about talking honestly with children about racism to the PBS KIDS for Parents website. Her work was also cited as a powerful model for developing young Black children's positive racial identity during the PBS KIDS' virtual discussion of racism.
