“Sesame Street” will reveal one of its muppets’ mothers suffered from opioid addiction.

As part of a set of new resources that include videos, storybooks and tips for parents, the green muppet with yellow hair named Karli will explain that she was in foster care because her mom “was away for a while because she had a grown-up problem,” NBC News reported.

The article goes on to state the following:

Karli, introduced earlier this year as a muppet who was in foster care, will tell her story through the Sesame Street in Communities project, which offers free content online. The show creators said they wanted to focus on addiction because 5.7 million children under 11 years old live with a parent who struggles with a substance addiction, according to the AP.

Jeanette Betancourt, senior vice president for U.S. social impact at Sesame Workshop, said it’s not typical to hear about how children are impacted by addiction, especially when it comes from a child’s “voice or perspective.”
