It’s Not Your Fault
Elmo and Karli’s pretend play helps Karli talk through a tough feeling.
Watch the video together with children, then ask: “Why did Karli think Baby Elephant was so sad?” Then ask, “What do you think Karli’s mom meant when she told Karli that her grown-up problem wasn’t her fault?”
On your own:
- Notice how pretend play can help children act out things that are going on in their lives, and observe children’s play for opportunities to talk about what’s coming up.
- Keep in mind that children may need to be told again and again that it’s not their fault!
