Mr. Rogers had simple rules for talking to children

“Fred Rogers insisted that every word, whether spoken by a person or a puppet, be scrutinized closely, because he knew that children—the preschool-age boys and girls who made up the core of his audience—tend to hear things literally.”

I love this so much. It really shows what a remarkable man Fred was: how he carefully thought about the smallest details to make sure that he taught kids in the best possible way.
