My 3 yr old has been so traumatized by the storm. We're staying at a friends apt while he's away. My son wants his bottle and once again is back in diapers after being potty trained. Thanks for this.

Eric, would you like to come to my mother's house (where we are staying temporarily) and try explaining to my 3 year old son why he can not go home and why one of the family pets is gone???

Eric, I feel your comment is sooooooo short-sighted. Are you capable of putting yourself in someone else's shoes? A child's? A parent's? How about a child who can't find their parent? There are plenty of other news channels to explore. Simply move on. Instead you were compelled to post criticism, while WNYC is attempting to help many citizens affected by Sandy who are looking for hope, comfort and answers.

Shocked and dismayed that there was something on that would help children? Perhaps you don't have children, but others do...

As I was trying to listen for hard news to find out what was going on I was shocked and dismayed that you had this ridiculous Elmo imitation segment on.
