can we talk about how this fucking pbs show aimed at little kids easily talked about how anxiety is stressful but normal

Ok no but can we talk about this entire episode? 

It was called April 9th, and it was actually a response to the 9/11 attacks. It didn’t talk about the attacks themselves, but rather focused on teaching kids to deal with the all of the emotions that they might be feeling as a result. They set up a situation that might evoke similar emotions in children: a massive fire at the school.

Arthur’s dad was in the fire, so (as you can see above), Arthur is constantly worried about his dad’s safety.

Sue Ellen is grieving because her journal, which contained a huge amount of precious memories, was destroyed in the fire. Muffy is confused why she can’t just cheer Sue Ellen up by giving her a new journal.

Buster wasn’t at school that day, and feels confused and guilty that he isn’t sad about the fire like the other kids. He then befriends the school janitor, who has to retire due to an injury that, at his age, is pretty serious.

Binky actually saw the flames, and is constantly traumatized by the event. He doesn’t tell anyone because he feels like he would lose his tough-guy reputation if he admitted that he was scared.

The episode teaches kids that all of these emotions are perfectly normal and natural, that there’s not one right way to feel, and that even if it takes a while, things are going to be okay.

The thing that makes this show so great, in my opinion, is that it knows that kids are intellegent and strong enough to deal with these things if you present them in the right way. It doesn’t hide them, it doesn’t sugar coat them, it just presents them in a way that children can understand and shows them how to deal with them.

#Arthur was my childhood jam and really stuff like this is one of the reasons why

No more excuses.

I will forever reblog this

It’s sort of horrifying that we all know what they’re talking about without them really saying it.. that it’s become that much of a norm in our society that we just know.

I WAS GOING TO POST THIS ON MY OTHER BLOG BUT

I CANT get past the fact that the second i read the first one i knew what this post was about and then i started crying in PUBLIC because I’ve heard all of these excuses and it makes me sick because animals understand the word no for fucks sakes my cat knows when i say no i mean no and you are telling me that a teenage boy doesn’t know when a girl wants him to stop and as a girl and being stuck in a situation like this its hard to say no

You think they’ll just spread it around

That they will lie about what really happened

Its terrifying to be in these situations and society makes it okay for girls to be pressured into these situations

Sorry about the rant i just had to say something
