@katiecouric: Children and Grief

The death of a parent is one of the toughest situations that a family can face.

It's the subject of a new initiative from Sesame Street Workshop called, "When Families Grieve," that airs tonight.

On this week's @katiecouric, Dr. Jeanette Betancourt - VP of outreach and educational practices at Sesame Street - and Elmo sat down for a talk about how families cope with the death of a loved-one.

The full video's embedded on the left.
