How can parents better teach their children about others living with disabilities and/or illnesses?
1. Let your children know it's OK to be curious – but to remember to be curious in a kind way.
2. Remind your children that we're all "different." Some people just wear their differences on the outside.
3. Don't forget that your children are watching you. How do you talk about people with disabilities? Do you stare at people with body differences, like birthmarks or missing limbs? Do you downplay mental health? The person with the condition will notice, and so will your children.
