can we talk about how this fucking pbs show aimed at little kids easily talked about how anxiety is stressful but normal
Ok no but can we talk about this entire episode?
It was called April 9th, and it was actually a response to the 9/11 attacks. It didn’t talk about the attacks themselves, but rather focused on teaching kids to deal with the all of the emotions that they might be feeling as a result. They set up a situation that might evoke similar emotions in children: a massive fire at the school.
Arthur’s dad was in the fire, so (as you can see above), Arthur is constantly worried about his dad’s safety.
Sue Ellen is grieving because her journal, which contained a huge amount of precious memories, was destroyed in the fire. Muffy is confused why she can’t just cheer Sue Ellen up by giving her a new journal.
Buster wasn’t at school that day, and feels confused and guilty that he isn’t sad about the fire like the other kids. He then befriends the school janitor, who has to retire due to an injury that, at his age, is pretty serious.
Binky actually saw the flames, and is constantly traumatized by the event. He doesn’t tell anyone because he feels like he would lose his tough-guy reputation if he admitted that he was scared.
The episode teaches kids that all of these emotions are perfectly normal and natural, that there’s not one right way to feel, and that even if it takes a while, things are going to be okay.
The thing that makes this show so great, in my opinion, is that it knows that kids are intellegent and strong enough to deal with these things if you present them in the right way. It doesn’t hide them, it doesn’t sugar coat them, it just presents them in a way that children can understand and shows them how to deal with them.
This makes me want to cry.
Same here, buddy. Same here.
I wanna hug ittttttttt it just like wattled over to him awww

Say Good-bye to Chub Rub!
When I find a product this great, this “revolutionary,” I just can’t keep it to myself! Ladies, say good-bye to chub rub and hello to Bandelettes!
Bandelettes are ingenious little bands of lace that you slip over your thighs, and are a perfect substitute for shapewear or creams/gels. Let’s not kid ourselves; shapewear is ugly and can be unbearably hot in the summer, and who wants to re-apply cream on their thighs all day long? Bandelettes solve those problems for good, and look sexy at the same time! (And for only $14.99, they’re completely affordable!)
I’ve been wearing a pair all day and I’ve not had to readjust them even once! They have thin silicone bands inside that run along the top and bottom of the band, which helps secure them in place. Normally I’m stuck in shapewear all spring/summer if I want to wear a dress, but with Bandelettes I think I might be able to have a Spanx-free summer!
(I was provided a pair of Bandelettes free of charge but was not asked to do a review.)
Saw this post and immediately went to check out the website and ordered a pair!
