A fresh perspective on divorce, spousal support, child support, parenting after separation and everything family law

“D” is for Divorce

I was watching my favorite video on the internet right now when I came across this video about an episode of Sesame Street called “D” is for Divorce:

As described by the Daily Mail:

Sesame Street has aired an episode which deals with the sensitive issue of divorce for the first time.

A scene on the issue had been originally written for the show in 1992 – but was a disaster when tested before an audience of pre-schoolers who misunderstood and became upset.

The idea was shelved until this year – when writers came up with a slot featuring a fairy called Abby Cadabby whose parents have been divorced for a while. The 13-minute segment will be aired online today. 

Check out the online article and the above video describing the making of the episode.  You can also find a summary of the 1992 episode, that was never aired, on Wikipedia.
