"Always return to how they feel about things,” Mariska says. “Some people aren’t as intellectually driven as others, but we all cry and laugh. If you want to relate to someone in a way that will strike deeply, it’s through emotion."

can we talk about how this pbs show aimed at little kids easily talked about how anxiety is stressful but normal

Ok no but can we talk about this entire episode? 

It was called April 9th, and it was actually a response to the 9/11 attacks. It didn’t talk about the attacks themselves, but rather focused on teaching kids to deal with the all of the emotions that they might be feeling as a result. They set up a situation that might evoke similar emotions in children: a massive fire at the school.

Arthur’s dad was in the fire, so (as you can see above), Arthur is constantly worried about his dad’s safety.

Sue Ellen is grieving because her journal, which contained a huge amount of precious memories, was destroyed in the fire. Muffy is confused why she can’t just cheer Sue Ellen up by giving her a new journal.

Buster wasn’t at school that day, and feels confused and guilty that he isn’t sad about the fire like the other kids. He then befriends the school janitor, who has to retire due to an injury that, at his age, is pretty serious.

Binky actually saw the flames, and is constantly traumatized by the event. He doesn’t tell anyone because he feels like he would lose his tough-guy reputation if he admitted that he was scared.

The episode teaches kids that all of these emotions are perfectly normal and natural, that there’s not one right way to feel, and that even if it takes a while, things are going to be okay.

The thing that makes this show so great, in my opinion, is that it knows that kids are intellegent and strong enough to deal with these things if you present them in the right way. It doesn’t hide them, it doesn’t sugar coat them, it just presents them in a way that children can understand and shows them how to deal with them.

I really feel like I need to watch some Arthur… this show…

Anonymous asked: why do you like Frozen so much?



Let me tell you a thing. A thing about the best character Disney has ever made (in my opinion). And how she’s in a way saving my life.

This is beautiful wonderful Elsa


Frozen isn’t a movie about the same heterosexual love that’s in 95% of the princess movies. Elsa is Disney’s representation of depression….and anxiety.

Two of the things I struggle with daily. 

Frozen is about overcoming fear, overcoming the belief that you are not good enough. Elsa was terrified of her abilities, almost paralyzed at the fear of hurting others she loved since an accident when she was little. She was afraid of herself and shut everyone out.


I don’t have abilities, but I do know about hurting others, terrible child hood memories and shutting people out. For years I couldn’t have people touch me. I still shy away from contact to this day.


As Elsa grew up her fear became stronger and the mental problems are more than note worthy, coming to the point of breaking. She screams and can’t control her emotions or her power.



Shes just so afraid. I know that fear. There hasn’t been a day or night in the past few months where I haven’t cried or had a panic attack or broke down and closed myself off completely.

This is where Elsa helped me. 

From somewhere deep inside herself she finds strength. Yes Anna helps later on and hits the final blow on the nail with the hammer but Anna wasn’t there when Elsa believed in herself and let her powers out to make beautiful creations.



In the song “Let it Go” she let herself become who she truly wants to be



she beat her fear
