Psychoanalyst and parent guidence coach Erica Komisar recently weighed-in with a new Wall Street Journal piece on the new movie, "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood" starring Tom Hanks as Fred Rogers.

"I actually prescribe watching 'Mr Rogers' reruns to parents who come see me, who struggle with trying to talk to their children," says Komisar. "I think many of the issues that Fred Rogers extolled and taught parents are still very necessary today."

Komisar says there is a need to be with your children as much as possible, physically and emotionally, "things like eye-contact and tone of voice and affection; these are things that you have to be physically there.  These are really important lessons for all parents."
