All week, we're going in depth on bullying. Next week Sesame Street will introduce a storyline about bullying, explaining what it means to be bullied and what children can do to prevent it or how to help if they see someone being tormented.
Big Bird, Elmo, Abby and the rest of the Sesame Street gang address the important issue of bullying in a special episode, "The Good Birds Club," airing on PBS October 17 (check your local listings). They will be the first pre-school show to address the topic of bullying.
Big Bird and his new friend Blue Jay stop by American Morning with¬†Rosemarie Truglio, vice president of education and research for Sesame Street, to talk about how parents and kids can stop bullying.
