Karli’s character on the show will talk about the way her mom’s opiates addiction has affected their family on their new edition of their online community resource initiatives. She also explains how her mom’s addiction has landed her in foster care as well. The show’s creators were inspired to talk about this topic precisely because millions of children live this precise type of reality in the United States, where their parents and other loved ones are addicted to drugs and alcohol, and they have no resources where they can learn how to cope with these problems.
According to Senior Vice President for US Social Impact at Sesame Workshop, Dr. Jeanette Betancourt, she explained in an interview that there are at least 5.7 million children under the age of 11 that happen to live with at least one parent that’s struggling with some type of addiction.
