Coming Home

Coming Home: Military Families Cope with Change is a television special produced by Sesame Workshop as part of the Talk, Listen, Connect initiative. The special premiered on PBS on April 1, 2009.

The special, hosted by Queen Latifah and John Mayer, is a follow-up to the 2006 television special "When Parents Are Deployed", hosted by Cuba Gooding, Jr. The special was designed to educate adults about the issues and effects of military parents homecomings and associated changes.
