FOR PARENTS: LISTEN TO YOUR HEART!
Arthur has valued the relationships among family and friends, and taught us about problem solving and ways to get along for years.
Arthur helps your child build character by learning to understand others’ perspectives and develop empathy, and a healthy sense of humor. Read all about the benefits of watching together in this article. PBS offers Arthur resources to help children and families manage back to school feelings, friendships, and physical health.
For a fun and meaningful activity, try Family History Fun! Children will practice communication skills as they interview family members to learn about their relatives and childhoods.
