WMHT Family Resources
Raising and educating a child is a challenge, and WMHT can help. Using the latest research as our guide, WMHT children's programs are designed to address the educational, social and emotional needs of children in specific, narrowly-targeted age groups. Explore our list of age-appropriate children's television programs below (the American Academy of Pediatrics urges parents to avoid television viewing for children under the age of two). Or, learn more about children and media.
WMHT provided screenings, craft activities, and visits with Clifford to families in Stepping Stones 1 in Lansingburgh, Schenectady Central Library, Lansingburgh Library, Crandall Public Library in Glens Falls, and the Gloversville Public Library. Learn more about the events here.

Sesame Street Resources for Families & Caregivers
Recent tragic events have left the nation shocked, horrified, and speechless. The children in our lives still have questions and fears.
"Are we safe?"
As parents, grandparents and caregivers, we want to help our children and make sense of the words and imagery they are seeing on TV and other media. Over the course of decades, Sesame Street has been asked these very questions, and have put together a packet of materials in hopes of helping families cope with these issues. Those materials, available here (as a pdf), are free for you to download.
