Fred Rogers' Conflicts

Fred Rogers knew about conflict, change, and culture. 

In Morgan Neville’s documentary, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”, you see that Mr. Rogers' work was in helping children with their conflicts——those in child psychology know that the conflicts of childhood are real. Mr. Rogers used the television stage as a change platform to check in on his audience on a weekly basis for nearly four decades from 1968 to the early 2000s. He beamed into the homes of children and addressed their fears and anxieties. His success laid in really connecting with children and understanding their culture. We know now that children have their culture too—their way of speech, their making sense of the world, their conflicts, and their way of relating to adults.

Mr. Rogers was an early pioneer—a transformation worker of conflict, change, and culture.
