You guys really really hungry
This incredible video uses skills that I have been learning about from CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy). As a man with both bipolar and OCD, I found this kind of thinking very helpful. It is particularly about thinking before reacting. Defusion is one of the most helpful skills I have learned from CBT.
This is why I support PBS
cookie monster show delete his tummy so he wont be hungry anymore
If the Cookie Monster can, you can. 🤗
Can I get that real Cookie Monster costume or not
Those cookies look bomb 😭 I want some
This is all he had to do before they tried to turn him into the veggie monster
I love that they talk about self-regulation with puppets yet everything geared towards children these days is pushed on them from an addiction stand-point. Cookies are filled with sugar (7 times more addictive than cocaine), tablets, phones and videos play with their dopamine receptors and not to mention the consumerism advertisements in EVERYTHING. Even the first ingredient of formula is high fructose corn syrup solids so we can addict them from birth. This is messed up and our kids are doomed from the start.

Looks like Yoda live action is doing well!
I would love to include the term co-regulation as a way to emphasize your role in supporting and modeling! You did a wonderful job co-regulating with Cookie Monster!😂
