As most of the world has been put under stay at home orders, friends from Sesame Street want to let everyone they’re not alone.

Elmo’s dad, Louie, recorded a message to share with parents at home.

In the PSA, Louie tells parents they are doing an amazing job and reminded them to take time for themselves by listening to a favorite song, stretch, or just breathe.

Louie ends his message by saying “We are all doing the best we can, and that is OK,” before rushing off to build a pillow fort with Elmo.
