I often hear parents talking about how upsetting it is when they hear unkind words spoken to their child.
No parent likes to see or hear their child upset by the actions or words of others.
All to often this is the case and it’s usually because someone is different or has needs different to the majority. That could be learning difficulties or a physical disability or it could be that your child is exceptionally bright.
Whatever the difference every child has a need to be accepted – in this we are all the same.
We as parents need to encourage our children to accept and celebrate those differences – they are exciting and not something to fear.
