Our beloved Sesame Street has become more inclusive to its younger viewers. Sesame Street has introduced its first character with incarcerated parents. “Alex,” represents over 2.7 million children in the US that have parents who are imprisoned. Last week, the long time running childhood television show added Alex to their online interactive series, “Little Children, Big Challenges,” which is designed to help children cope with incarcerated parents.
Finally, an educational show that breaks the norm and speaks about real issues, affecting real people!
