The Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit organization behind Sesame Street, recently launched a website devoted to helping families cope with the changes associated with transitioning into civilian life. Sesame Workshop contains resources that military parents can use to help their families communicate through the transition process. The Department of Defense (DoD) has worked with the Sesame Workshop in the past to use Sesame Street's familiar characters to help preschool-aged military children understand aspects of military life such as the deployment of a parent or moving to a new home. Previous examples of these resources can be found through Military OneSource.
