In “The Friendship Show”, we wanted a segment that inspired children to become the “helpers.” In a relatable scene to many, this story of “One for All” depicts a new-kid character who questions the school bully. Though all the other characters have accepted – or acclimated to the aggressor, our hero, Seth, questions the bully’s behavior and ultimately helps the team comes up with a plan to stop it. Seth becomes the helper and inspires all to help themselves. We hope that your kids are inspired by this story too. Whether it helps them socially in school or with friends, or whether it gives them the empowering knowledge that they can help themselves and their friends during times of crisis, we think Mister Rogers would approve of its lasting message.
