6 Sesame Street Videos Kids Can Watch on the Meaning of Kindness

Our muppet friends have been teaching the value of kindness as part of the show’s mission. Here are Sesame Street videos we can all learn from.

We have often been reminded by our parents to practice kindness. Kindness means helping other people in your own way. And who else can teach our kids about kindness but our friends from Sesame Street? Since it was first broadcasted in the US in 1969, Sesame Street’s mission was to teach three things: to help kids everywhere to be smarter, stronger, and kinder. The show has taught kids the value of kindness for years thanks to research and a lot of help from people around the world. Here are Sesame Street videos you and your kids can watch about kindness from our muppet friends.
