Mr. Rogers: When I come outside, sometimes I think about a time when I was very little. You know, I wasn't allowed to go out of the house by myself when I was very little. My parents were afraid that somebody might take me away and they wouldn't see me again. So they always said, "Freddy, when you want to go outside, always tell somebody and somebody can go with you." Well, the day I'm thinking about, I forgot, and I went out into the yard by myself and my mother couldn't find me in the house anywhere. She called and called, but I couldn't hear her because I was outside. Finally, she looked out in the yard, and there I was. Well, she was really angry, and she made me go to my room and think about what I had done, and that made me sad and angry, too. But you know, if children do things that might be dangerous, their parents can get very angry. It's just that their parents want them to be safe and well. That's all.
LADY ABERLIN: Learning to cope with disappointments when we're young, helps us to deal with other disappointments when we're grown up.
