When Children Miss Their Friends

There are ways to stay connected with people we love...safely.

  1. Before watching the video, ask children which friends or family members they miss seeing the most. What do they miss doing with those people? You might talk about some of your own loved ones that you miss most, and the things you wish you could do with them.
  2. As you watch, point out that that Elmo really misses his friends, too. Together with children, watch this video to see how Elmo’s mom helps him set up a video call with his friends.
  3. After watching, talk with children about other ways you can maintain friendships from afar.
