“Thoughts for the Week” allow us to read why Fred Rogers presented certain topics on the Neighborhood, and how he tried to help children understand those themes. These thoughts are about fantasy and reality, wishing and hoping. Fred explains how children might be experiencing the world and offers advice to parents and caregivers on how to help children through difficult times.
This writing went along with a week of Neighborhood programs about wishing for something and the disappointment that could come if the hoped-for event does not happen.
