Fred Rogers had deep compassion for the wellbeing of every child. Inspired by his legacy and drawing from his work, we are developing resources to encourage and support children and caregivers.
Students in the Incubator 143 Lab spent a year conducting research in the Fred Rogers Archive and building a comprehensive understanding of the many ways Fred worked to support grieving children. The resulting product of their research is a brochure developed for parents and caregivers as they support their children through the loss of a loved one. The brochure is designed to apply to children of any age and any particular circumstance of grief. We hope through this brochure to share Fred’s message to parents and caregivers: “Even in hard times such as this, you are just what your child needs.”
