Nearly half of American children have experienced an Adverse Childhood Experience (ACEs)- an unexpected stressful occurrence, like natural disasters or witnessing violent acts. These traumatic experiences and resulting toxic stress can disrupt a child’s brain development and increase the risk of both short-term and long-term physical, social, and emotional issues. As part of an initiative to help families cope with these traumatic experiences, the team at Sesame Street has developed the game Big Bird’s Comfy-Cozy Nest. This game helps kids explore strategies for calming and comforting themselves in times of stress.
