Life Lessons from Daniel Tiger

If you have young children, chances are you are familiar with Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. The PBS series follows the lives Daniel Tiger, his family, and friends. Children learn age-appropriate social skills with Daniel through creativity, imagination, and music. For me, the songs are what stick out. Or, rather, get stuck in my head. I find myself […]
