The point seems to be lost on most adults. Sesame Street tries to teach children about inclusion when things don’t make sense. The show has also had a character who has autism when autism was starting to be widely diagnosed. People are people. Whether it be there ethnicity or perhaps a disability they need to be treated with respect. There are also real people in the show. The fact is in the states and a lot of other places due to the pandemic people who are Asian or look as though there are Asian have been targeted. It’s simply a way to show kids to be kind. Just as it’s always been. Some people seem to take it so personal and it just isn’t for you.

As someone who had to take a PCR test today because a coworker decided not wear a mask and has now tested positive stop thinking about just yourselves. You wear a mask in case you are carrying the virus. I wear mine for the same reason. We’ve seen spittle tests showing the spread is lessened between people wearing masks. It’s not 100% effective but it does help. I really don’t want to be one of these “so what” numbers come a couple days from now.

I've told my son repeatedly of anyone tries to get him to go with them aka kidnapping that he can yell , punch , kick , hit ect. He knows along his school route which houses he can run to for help. We live less than 10 minutes from his school but I've given him a house on every block that he can go to for help. Two of which are businesses. He knows not to get into anyone's car except for his grandparents. He knows to run in the opposite direction if someone pulls up in a car and to go to one of his safety places. He knows he won't get in trouble for someone is bothering him. Parents are FIRST in line to teach the kids about safety. No one thinks it'll happen to us. We had someone approach an 8 yr old boy in a car before summer break. The school DID NOT inform any parents. They told the kids not to get into a strangers car and left it at that. I found out through the grapevine and then asked my son about it. We speak weekly if not more about his safety. Not in a scary way but he needs it reiterated in his head that he should not go with someone he does/doesn't know unless I say it's ok. You don't have to approach it in a terrifying way to help them learn but they need to know its not a joking subject.
Sorry about the essay ！(◎_◎;)
