    i understand the thought process but, when i was a kid, i didn't care about or understand these things in any way. i feel like these constant child growth promotions the government is adding to kids shows is going to eventually stimulate children in very bad ways if it hasn't already

  26. TheSkyGoddess Amelia Brown

    I remember going to school with my sister when we were kids. I hated it when other kids would poke fun at her because she's autistic. This warms my heart to the point of tears because Julie reminds me of my sister.

  27. Not to sound like a hater but what I don't like is that say autistic children just do things differently, that is not totally precise thing to say. Geniuses do things differently.

  28. I really love that Sesame Street will tackle heavier subjects for children of the new generation.
