What Mister Rogers Said

You may have seen the photo circulating of Mister Rogers with this quote,
“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping’.”
What wisdom the man had! I guess his mom was wise, too. He was like my third parent, I think. I watched that show all the time.
The quote has been attributed to his book, Mister Rogers Parenting Book which I could not find at my library. It’s available on Kindle , though. Gotta ask my mom if she has a copy.
The Huffington Post  shared this video back in December. In light of recent events, in general, I thought I would share it with you.
We so often and mistakenly think that kids need more details than they do. I think the implication in this one-minute clip is to ask what they already know and speak to those fears.
Scary and sad things are happening all around us. Our kids need to know we will fight for them, and we will help them fight their fears.
