"Anything human is mentionable, and anything mentionable can be manageable." This basic approach is one of the themes of this program which features a candid discussion about the way Mister Rogers approaches the topic of death in his program "Death of a Goldfish." Fred Rogers is joined by Hedda Sharapan, a noted expert on children, as they discuss "how to talk about death with children."




This video includes several clips from Episode 1101, the episode commonly referred to as "Death of a Goldfish."

An instrumental of I Like To Be Told is used in the opening of this video.
