How rich Fred’s perspective on child development was… incorporating all manner of folks in the child development neighborhood, including Erikson and McFarland and Spock.
Anna Hartman
24:27
Trust (vs. mistrust). Begins at infancy.
andik
24:51
I graduated from Pitt in the what was called Child Care and Development and Early Childhood Education in 1978. I grew up in Pittsburgh watching Mr. Rodgers I think before it was syndicated. I also do a practicum at the Arsenal Center as well. Forgive my bit of bragging rites.
Anna Hartman
25:01
-It is a decision in a child’s personality to see the world as trusting or untrusting place.
Anna Hartman
25:27
-If we can give children a sense of trust in their very early childhood, this can carry them ahead to their lives as adults.
racheldennen
25:35
Ayy Sarah!! I just finished my first year getting my Masters in Applied Developmental Psychology at Pitt. I think we had a class together :)
Anna Hartman
25:49
-How can we keep things steady for babies at this time? So much disruption.
Anna Hartman
26:15
-It is up to us to think about where the vulnerabilities are, and where we can provide loving experiences for them.
Anna Hartman
27:02
-Erikson’s second stage: Autonomy and self doubt. With toddlers, critical to think about sense of trust and autonomy. Some sense of being in control of their lives.
Anna Hartman
27:30
-What we know is that when there is a crisis, if we don’t help children work through these crises, it can impact them into adulthood
Anna Hartman
28:57
-Next stage is initiative. In our EE programs we value this and set up opportunities for children to take initiative. I worry when I see the preschoolers go back into their homes that what is being provided and recommended is a little more prescriptive than what might be best. How to not offer worksheets and even animated worksheets. If we are going to provide them wit happy, need to think about apps that will foster initiative rather than just drill and practice
iPad (2)nan sumner
29:10
this is spot on!
Anna Hartman
29:41
-Next stage is the school age—Industry. They like to be busy, they have great ideas, esp if they had solid sense of initiative during the earlier years.
Anna Hartman
29:51
-The Dozen Cousins!
Crystal Whitman Jax,FL
30:01
It's hard to balance how much they are screens right now. We typically say to limit screen time and now we're trying to get them involved through screens.
Elisabeth Kaiser
30:01
That is awesome!!!
Anna Hartman
31:55
-Even though this focuses on children a little bit older, Industry is part of the trajectory.
racheldennen
32:03
You are muted
Adena
32:06
No volume.
racheldennen
32:24
All good :)
Anna Hartman
32:49
-An expression of care every day to each child
Adena
32:56
He was a wonderful speaker!
Anna Hartman
32:58
-To help him realize that he is unique
Anna Hartman
33:33
-If we…can only make it clear that feelings are mentionable and manageable, we will have done a great service for mental health
Anna Hartman
33:45
-Constantly concerned about what our children are seeing
Claire Mellish
33:49
this video was to convince the floor of congress to not cut funding for public programming. He obviously convinced them
Anna Hartman
34:01
-A meaningful expression of care
Anna Hartman
34:10
Yes, Claire!
Anna Hartman
34:21
-Feelings that are mentionable can be manageable
Anna Hartman
35:54
-At the Fred Rogers Center, we have an archive with scripts and notes and correspondence and the puppets. Our archivist keeps things organized. We make the archive open to researchers. We have a large group of educators who join our partnership. We have set an educators’ neighborhood.
Alexandra Sanley
35:55
“Play is the work of children.”
Anna Hartman
36:56
-Simple interactions project. Helps people take time to look at those simple interactions—the ways we engage that can help build so much for the children.
Carolyn Linder
37:02
https://www.fredrogerscenter.org/
Melissa
37:03
I love the idea of "Simple Interactions."
Anna Hartman
38:07
-We videotape in classrooms and at the crossing guard and then we have the ppl in the project look and notice how adults are supporting children. I mention this project bc in this time we are far from children we have the chance to reflect. We can use our recollections to think about where are the ways we give children a sense of trust, allow their autonomy development, etc.
Anna Hartman
38:22
-In these times, we can think about being reflective.
Anna Hartman
38:55
-In these times, we can focus on our connections wit the families
Anna Hartman
40:15
-At the Fred Rogers Center we developed with NAEYC the technology position statement. We have tried to operationalize the principles of the technology statement. One the things we emphasize is the three Cs—when making decisions about technology, need to focus on Child, Content, and Context.
Claire Mellish
41:18
Fred Rogers was very worried about the effects of simulated reality/animation on the developing psyche of the child. I believe he was outspoken against it
Carolyn Linder
41:34
https://www.naeyc.org/sites/default/files/globally-shared/downloads/PDFs/resources/topics/12_KeyMessages_Technology.pdf
Anna Hartman
41:36
-The projects trying to support now focus on using technology on ways the support child development, express themselves, help them create.
Ellen Dietrick
42:04
I like that- when it’s working the technology disappears
Anna Hartman
42:09
-When the technology disappears and the activity takes the forefront, that is what we want. It is about the message, the sharing, the relationship. Tech just a vehicle to get us there.
Carolyn Linder
42:10
When used intentionally and appropriately, technology and interactive media areeffective tools to support learning and development. T
Brian Anderson
42:24
this is some valuable information
Anna Hartman
42:44
-We advise, pay attention to what they are doing on the screens
Anna Hartman
43:08
-If we can help them connect, create, organize their lives, that is what we seek.
Oriyah Sandefur
43:55
We would show a Mr. Rogers Neighborhood episode every day before rest time. We would say that it was not television, it was Mr. Rogers.
Anna Hartman
44:12
-How children are communicating their concerns to their families and relatives. How to help families see that if children are expressing anger, there may be underlying feelings to explore.
Claire Mellish
44:12
that's very cool
Claire Mellish
44:21
@ Oriyah
Oriyah Sandefur
44:33
thanks @ Claire
Carolyn Linder
44:49
Fred said, “It’s through relationships that we grow best—and learn best.”
Anna Hartman
44:59
-Impt to remember and help fans understand: lots of ways to talk about feelings! Children know what it feels like but may not have the words. Getting beneath the behavior and understand what is the feeling there.
Anna Hartman
45:11
-Listening to children.
Robin Bright
45:31
several of my parents are concerned about more tantrum’s at home, more recently.
Anna Hartman
45:40
-The pace of Fred. Those moments of silence during which children would respond to him.
Oriyah Sandefur
45:54
@ Robin that makes sense
racheldennen
46:44
Have any of you been asked how to describe the pandemic to their children? If you have, how did you describe it?
Anna Hartman
46:44
-When we bring children back, how to make time for children to talk, tell us what they are thinking about. Sometimes they tell us through playing and building and storytelling and drawing. Lets help families build play environments where children can express how they are feeling and build development in Eriskson’s domains.
Johanna Spath
46:52
On maintaining parent and child connection: I hold individual zoom meetings with my families. We call it a "Family Check In." Parents sign up for time to chat, ask for individualized support, and share about their experiences. I do the same with the children to get feedback about our meetings online, and what they are feeling about being at home. It has helped tremendously in creating meaningful experiences online that support the children AND their families. I have been able to differentiate in ways that would not have been possible before.
Anna Hartman
46:58
-Sense of loss among children
Anna Hartman
47:40
-A toddler may be burying the toys in the sand or covering everything up with play dough—we see patterns emerging that tell us that children are struggling with the disappearance of ppl and the things that were imp in their lives
Anna Hartman
48:03
-When we are back, teachers should be ready to read children’s play and notice the concerns on their minds.
Shira Frager
48:25
^ I love this, about the toddler burying toys in the sand, etc.. So powerful
Anna Hartman
48:39
-Children will want safe place to communicate what they are feeling to others. 3s and 4s may build and knock down—that is what has happened to them in this period. We can help give them opportunities to build it all up again.
Ellen Dietrick
48:43
Meaningless if you aren’t paying attention!
Raina Hooper
49:00
My toddler has been burying his toy cars in kinetic sand for the past two days....wow.
Anna Hartman
49:09
-They give us an opportunity to talk about feelings within our programs
Jennifer Chmielus
49:48
@Raina - lots of burying and smashing here as well.
Anna Hartman
50:13
-Everyone has lots of ways of feeling—fine—it is what we doin with those feelings are what matters.
Debbie Posner
50:44
What a beautiful message. Learn to respect who you are inside.
Adena
51:09
He was a brilliant man!
Anna Hartman
51:29
-If we don’t give children to process and talk about it, can have lasting effects. But I am confident that we can support children through these challenges that we can give them the coping skills they need
Anna Hartman
52:28
-Play. Concerned that we are overloading children with tasks to do when they are home. So often concerned with ensuring they are busy, and so many suggestions for what children may be doing.
Anna Hartman
52:39
-Families don’t have the experience that YOU have!
Sarah Breslau
53:16
love that play is a universal language
Adena
54:27
We are responsible for sending one written provocation a week. I teach a part time 2-3 yr old program.
Anna Hartman
54:36
-May think that play means they must play with them. But also the app for parents to build resilience skills among the children that we as teachers build into our environments. Helpful for you to get together with one another and offer wisdom, ways to put control back in the child’s hands, related to idea of initiative. Who controls the children’s play—how and what materials are used, along with the final outcomes. When we put these decisions back in hands of children, we are providing DA experiences. When children feeling stressed, may want more direction. That is ok but goal should be for adults to back off.
Alyssa Brandi
54:39
This is great, beneficial information! Wow!
Crystal Whitman Jax,FL
54:54
I've been talking to my parents and my team about trying to get the parents to just work on their connections. Do 'fun' things together, and work on building positive moments and memories. We give them ideas to look at and activities, and do book readings, etc. For them to pick and choose what they are able or wanting to do.
Anna Hartman
55:12
-Adults can gradually step out and let child take control of the play. Then we can see their themes, their competence building, will build their own pride and self esteem
Anna Hartman
55:20
-Challenge for ALL of us—helplessness.
Anna Hartman
55:56
-Makes us adults want to take control. Can we back off and let children have one little area of their play like and we provide the scaffolding as necessary
Anna Hartman
56:10
-Easy to take over but is not the best thing for them
Anna Hartman
56:39
-Letting children draw pictures and tell a story about them. How can we give tips like this to parents?
Johanna Spath
57:45
We send families "invitations for play" to inspire parents to engage in play/research with and guided by their children. No pressure to create a product, just be in the process and enjoy the experience of play
Anna Hartman
57:57
-It is helpful if we recognize that sometimes even just making the painting (not always the words) is enough to work through feelings
Adena
58:06
It's always the process not the product!
Anna Hartman
58:17
-When they have the opportunity to express concerns, feelings become more manageable and then can be put away.
Anna Hartman
58:30
-Without this, they build up and cannot master and resolve those feelings
Anna Hartman
59:00
-Of course YOU know what play experiences are valuable; maybe would be helpful for you to share some of these with families.
Anna Hartman
01:00:01
-Help families remember games from childhood
Anna Hartman
01:00:18
-Most valuable perhaps is giving children resources—and encouraging pretend play
Anna Hartman
01:00:56
-Take some time at dinner to talk about the stories they created in their pretend play. These are kinds of experiences that will make children feel safe and talk about their feelings
Anna Hartman
01:01:18
-Would love to hear from you how you are managing the questions you are hearing from children about COVID-19
Anna Hartman
01:01:34
-Resources at Common Sense Media, Fred Rogers Center
Adena
01:01:42
My JCC had a virtual parenting class about Covid.
Adena
01:02:06
The kids miss their friends.
Rosa
01:02:12
Parents are concern- Teachers wearing a mask and children missing the facial expressions.
Ellen Dietrick
01:02:12
Am I sick?
Alexandra Sanley
01:02:21
My 4 year old says its a big red ball with blue spikes
Michelle Einstoss
01:02:32
I want these Getms
Anna Hartman
01:02:32
-(children may think they are to blame)
Oriyah Sandefur
01:02:37
@ Alexandra, that’s very descriptive
Debbie Rabin
01:02:47
children miss their friends, parents are seeing a rise in acting out behavior
Michelle
01:02:47
A parent told me that their child asked what quarantine means
Michelle Einstoss
01:02:48
I want these germs to go away.
Alexandra Sanley
01:02:50
He saw an image on tv
Elisabeth Kaiser
01:02:55
They miss being in the classroom, and seeing their friends.
Cherene Radis
01:02:57
Children not wanting to interact with their peers or teachers,
Bryce Tallon
01:03:04
My daughter talks about protecting people from “the virus”
Debbie Posner
01:03:11
One of our children said.“It’s a virus. You have to cover you mouth and nose with a mask so you don’t make someone sick. You need to wear a mask otherwise you get the flu”
Anelise
01:03:12
One of my preschoolers thinks she is staying home to keep other people healthy
Jennifer Chmielus
01:03:16
one of our students thought they couldn’t go to “Disney World because of all the dead bodies.”
Andrea Noam's grandma
01:03:17
We are not open yet, but now making videos of teachers wearing masks to make the children feel safe and comfortable
Amy G
01:03:30
Can you give an example of an interactive activity that would allow children to express their feelings - via zoom?
Crystal Whitman Jax,FL
01:03:31
There are some different social stories available. My son is a Senior, so he (along with tons of others) have lost a lot this year including graduation. That's the hardest part in our home.
Adena
01:03:47
Sanjay did a great job in the Town Hall.
Lucy Baron
01:03:52
I think the parents miss us more than the children haha I teach toddlers and they get very excited when they see us on zoom for 10-15 minutes three times a week. The parents are very grateful for all the resources and activities that we have given them!
Debbie Posner
01:03:55
Another child said “We need to care for other people. We need to keep people safe.”
Lori Taper
01:04:08
children miss their friends and some shut down
Jessica Jones
01:04:29
I've had some children saying "I can't see my friends because they could get sick." We've also had children not wanting to log in for virtual circle times and activities
Katy Gess
01:04:31
I have spent a lot of time talking to parents - not answering questions, but mostly just chatting because they miss adult interaction!
Adena
01:04:33
Some kids aren't interested in the Zoom sessions.
Johanna Spath
01:04:35
Our students often use the phrase "when the germs are gone"
Crystal Whitman Jax,FL
01:04:41
Whenever we go back to our school, it sounds like just the teachers would be wearing masks, but theyre toddlers and they need to see our faces, and watch how we form our words, etc
Bryce Tallon
01:04:42
Parents are concerned because their children are refusing to join Zoom circle times and saying things like “I don’t like my friends” or “I don’t want my friends in my house”. They’re starting to withdraw at this point and parents are struggling with how to engage them
Debbie Rabin
01:04:46
zoom is hard for a lot of children
Julie Brooke
01:05:09
Some of mine have resisted zoom, they don't feel comfortable interacting online
Debbie Rabin
01:05:11
individual zoom/facetime is helpful
andik
01:05:11
I just read yesterday that a deaf person developed a mask that was clear in the front so they can read lips .
Johanna Spath
01:05:27
Send mail! Our school has a pen pal project that is going so well
Adena
01:05:31
Zoom is very helpful but two months of it is becoming a bit much for some kids.
Julie Brooke
01:05:32
I did sidewalk visits with each of my students last week and they loved it.
April Ohms
01:05:40
My teenager refuses to be on video chat. It's not just toddlers!
Hannah Petrone
01:05:43
I babysit for a child who is having a hard time with staying home and he is angry a lot! what can I do to help him understand what is happening and why he is feeling this way?
Debbie Posner
01:05:44
We did a drive-by today and it was rich and meaningful. Teachers are being pen-pals with the children.
Adena
01:05:48
I saw the clear mask. Very interesting.
Laurie Markiewicz
01:05:49
Children are wondering when they can go home. Many are in second homes or at another family members house. While others are still in the city curious as to why their friends are not in the city too.
Crystal Whitman Jax,FL
01:05:51
I have found FaceTime chats more useful than zoom with the kids. Gives them one on one, and it doesn't have to be long, or it CAN be. All up to how the child is doing. They liked getting cards from us with some stickers to experiment with
Jaclyn
01:05:51
I had a parent share today that they are most worried about how they’re 4 yr old will remember this time? Will there be long term issues? Trauma and anxiety? So many of our children might end up suffering with a form of post traumatic stress from this experience. It all happened so quickly (feels like over night) and they are all processing it so differently
Tobe Goldberg
01:06:01
So we record our Zooms and it seems the families that don’t come to the Zoom do watch it when it’s a better time for their child.
randitraiman
01:06:02
They also can not be with friends at all……. Not just in school.
Ayelet
01:06:05
I think we’ll need to be careful when we return, with all these children that are told now that their friends will get sick if they see them-we’ll need to be sure they know they can come back to school without making their friends sick! And that if someone does get sick-it’s not their fault!
jamielevine
01:06:20
Most of my kids prefer private sessions instead of group sessions. I like to check in with the parents once a week, even if it is just to say hello. It is nice to still feel connected to the parents and students. My student that was potty trained has no regressed and is no longer potty trained
leyton
01:06:22
photos or still images
Jill's ipad
01:06:23
we have been writing letters and sending emails. The children just want the connection. as well as zoom
Katie Fanke
01:06:23
How do you help parents understand that we are no longer their childcare and it is unreasonable/developmentally inappropriate to expect a 5 year old to sit in a zoom call for 30 or more minutes?
Crystal Whitman Jax,FL
01:06:34
I have a student that uses my book reading as part of their bedtime routine
Eliza Martin
01:06:39
I’m grateful for Zoom but it’s hard to feel the same sense of “togetherness” that we normally feel at school
Kelli George
01:06:40
I never thought about people who need to read lips. Wow!
Debbie Rabin
01:06:40
private zoom/facetime
Adena
01:06:41
I like the idea of recording the Zoom and then sending to parents to watch later on.
Robin Bright
01:06:47
FaceTime calls are helpful for children to share feelings rather than in a group zoom
susan
01:06:49
I am concerned that when we return to preschool, that there will be some sseparation anxiety from the children.
Katie F
01:07:04
I’ve seen with my 3 year old he doesn’t want to Zoom but he does a lot
Debbie Rabin
01:07:05
they are not responding so much to group zoom
Katie F
01:07:36
he does a lot of imaginary play about his friends from school
Billy Dalwin Pre-School
01:07:53
One of our children said, “I don’t want to Zoom. I want to touch my friends.” Some of our kids really enjoy & look forward to
Adena
01:07:54
Separation anxiety will definitely be a real reality when preschoolers go back.
Anna Hartman
01:07:59
_Fred emphasized it is important to listen. We don’t have answers but we hear and validate their concerns.
Billy Dalwin Pre-School
01:08:04
Zoom meetings, but others don’t
Veronica Maravankin
01:08:05
This video shows the pattern to make a mask with a clear part to be able to see the expressions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2_fzooIKNU
Catherine M Baier
01:08:10
their school won't be the same when they come back. how do we prepare them for that? we are uncertain how it will all be.
Lori Taper
01:08:30
At first when we did Zoom we had our whole class and lately it’s only been 2 or 3.
Kelli George
01:08:32
Older school aged children are angry...they feel like all their hard work & accomplishments don't matter.
Ronit Ben-Shir
01:08:39
we also needs to trust the children to find creative way to understand this time
Carrie Rosen
01:08:40
Catherine, that's a great question!
Anna Hartman
01:08:47
-Parents may not realize that they are playing the feelings and stories that are on their mind.
Lea Mendoza
01:09:21
how do we prepare them if they are worried to get sick when returning to school ?
Katie F
01:09:23
thank you!!
Ellen Dietrick
01:09:39
From Ilene Kandler: We did a sign up genius for a bedtime story time with each child. the children in my class are all turning 2. Its a nice time to see each child and then chat with the parents,
Rebecca Gautieri
01:09:40
Someone asked about long term ramifications for the children.
Anna Hartman
01:09:49
Is this Jaci talking? Hi!
jamielevine
01:11:24
I had a few of the parents tell us that their kids are now having nightmares. Can I do something to help?
Anna Hartman
01:11:46
Friends, Will you share more questions in the chat? Ellen and I will collect and can share
Joshua Rifkin
01:12:25
I wonder what will be the psychological and developmental implications of teaching children that their safety is dependent on keeping physical distance from their friends. Even as an adult I am beginning to have a pavlovian response to being to close to people.
Rebecca Gautieri
01:12:26
regression In behaviors, toileting, etc.
Jennifer Chmielus
01:12:37
separation anxiety with my 4 year old is at an all time
Jennifer Chmielus
01:12:41
high
Debbie Rabin
01:13:19
children are feeling their parents anxiety...resulting in .a lot of regression, crying, tantrums
Johanna Spath

What about children who say they don't miss school at all and are not engaging online or otherwise? As their teacher, I am concerned this is an avoidance technique. Is it appropriate to teach them about closure? Should we talk about missing someone/something if they are not showing signs of that? I teach 4 year olds

What about kids that were potty trained and are no longer potty trained?

I would like to echo @jamielevines question on potty training
Catherine M Baier
01:15:29
many of their friends won't be there when they go back to school. how do we prepare them for that?
Katie F
01:15:36
does the potty trained kids regression go back to needing more control?
Adena
01:16:01
I was thinking to make a video for my kids showing them what I look like with my mask on.
Debbie Rabin
01:16:04
do you think that the teachers should do a drive by so that the children can see them in masks? this is the new reality and we will have to wear them at work
Geula Zamist
01:16:05
any wisdom on what teachers can do with children during zoom meetings or one on one calls to support the SEL and imaginary play?

I heard some good thoughts about masks earlier today - rely on our tone of voice, say "you can't see me, but I'm smiling at you"
Carrie Rosen
01:16:48
Like Jamie and Andre, I am also curious about potty training regression or plateau - we have had questions on this topic from several parents. Kids who were really excited and making great progress now aren't excited about potty training or have completely regressed.
Oriyah Sandefur
01:16:50
@ Cherene I like that idea too
Jaclyn
01:16:59
We connected the idea of wearing a mask is like Superheroes wearing their mask and capes. Our Super Helpers are wearing masks to keep everyone safe and healthy, and we can all be a Super Helper
Adena

I love the drive by idea.

How will meals and snack times work with masks? Is it just the adults who wear them? Or children too?
Crystal Whitman Jax,FL

lol, kind of like when we're sick (even as adults) we still want our mommies ;)

-Regression in service of the ego. Helpful for children to back up and give it another running Strat. Recognizing that it is typical and helpful. Better to go back and rework thongs than to go ahead without things being shored up. Be patient.
Debbie Rabin
01:18:22
children 2 and under do not wear masks

I’m also curious if you have suggestions around closure as we move into the last few weeks of school. I’m concerned about how to help the children find a sense of closure and ease their transition when we are so uncertain what will happen over the summer or next year.
Anna Hartman
01:20:30
-To watch a few Mr Rogers videos where he talks to someone. Watch his wait time, how he sets up the conversation, how he brings closure. We are so often in presentation mode. Give the children time. Be patient. Listen. Have the children share things, such as a picture they drew. Help children feel a part of the conversation.
Brandy Hudson
01:20:45
show and tell has been working for our kids on zoom.
Sarah Ruderman Wilensky
01:20:56
Yes, it's challenging to have wait time on zoom, the silence makes people very uncomfortable
Ellen Dietrick
01:21:01
I just keep repeating. “Now I am drawing a red line. Now a blue one…”. Just like Mr Rogers would have done.
Lori Taper

Here children are to wear mask at age 2. How do we do snack and lunch? We are very hands on at this age and younger. WE like to show the children we eat too, so I susually eat an apple, which I would have to take a mask off too.
Laurie Markiewicz

I teach studio classes on zoom for ages 1.5-5, a lot of what I do is by giving the opportunity to not only share what kind of creative materials they have at home, but also providing them the space to share observations or thoughts. During these times, I have been supporting both the children and their parents with thinking about alternate materials I.e. nature, recyclables

I took videos of the classrooms just the way we left them, with their names and photos and ar work still there, and we'll likely show ourselves packing up their things and we're hoping to have families come for a drive-by to get their box, or we'll deliver it.

For us, I think it's going to be like the first day whenever we go back for the year round kids. Having to get used to us again, being away from home, getting back into routines. (Toddlers anyway)

Little rituals we can do for children, preserve those—paintings they receive, a certificate. Preserve some of those end of year activities. Closure.

In a family, 1 elderly age 60 plus is ego (more and more ego as age increases), example interrupting speech, ordering ppl to help do thing when that task can be done by he/she himself... some of us is getting more dislike about that elderly and no one speak to him about this (the spouse and most children keep silent and let him be)... may you help share some guidance please on what we can do when we are getting more dislike to that person?
