Description

Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood both promote the social and emotional learning of preschoolers, leading to lifelong positive effects. Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood has recently been created to replace Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, to an unknown degree of effectiveness. Despite the success of these two shows, we still have a lot to learn about the teaching of socio-emotional skills, but perhaps what is even more unsettling is that the majority of children’s programs simply ignore the proven methods of socio-emotional learning that these shows have established, possibly to the detriment of their own goals of cognitive education.
