Sesame Street is tackling a touchy topic for kids and parents:  divorce.

This week, Sesame Street will debut its 13-minute online segment called “Little Children, Big Challenge: Divorce.” It stars Abby Cadaby, whose parents, as we learn, have been divorced for a while.

A Sesame Street spokesperson says she wants kids to understand they’re not alone and it’s not their fault. She also wants children to learn that if Abby went through a similar challenge it would make it okay for them.
