Little Children, Big Challenges: Divorce is a Sesame Street resource kit and video released online on December 10, 2012, with the full version of the video going online the next day, December 11. Like other resource video kits, it is also being made available on DVD to military families and to the general public through various family courts, counseling services, parenting and child care programs, and related outlets.
The resource video and support materials are part of Sesame Workshop's resiliency initiative Little Children, Big Challenges. The bilingual, multimedia outreach initiative focuses on helping children increase self-awareness, boost self-esteem, and persevere through changes.
The video is the show's second attempt to explain the subject of divorce. Previously, they tried to show Snuffy's family going through the turmoil of divorce in an unaired 1992 episode, "Snuffy's Parents Get a Divorce," but it failed in the testing phase due to the emotions depicted being a bit too realistic, leaving the test audience upset. The producers went on a different route in making this project, focusing on how Abby has gotten over the divorce rather than going through the process.
