If you’ve ever sat and watched Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood with your kid, and thought to yourself, There’s no way Mom Tiger is always that calm and collected!, you’ll soon be rejoicing.
After receiving more than a few complaints from moms everywhere, the creator behind the popular kids’ show, told the writers to produce a more realistic episode.
“Parents wrote in demanding to see a truer reflection of themselves; a flawed parent who sometimes makes mistakes and loses his/her temper,” the executive producer explained. “No parent is perfect, and just as all kids can push those imperfect parents to the edge, four-year-old Daniel would logically be doing the same to his mom and dad. I want a show to depict that, instead of everything being sunshine and roses, ending with hugs, kisses, and a kumbaya type song. In reality, some families conclude their day with the theme song “Crazy Train” playing and I wanted that to be seen.”
Before it airs next month, we received a synopsis for the show, which will be titled, “Daniel Won’t Stay in Bed”.
