If there’s one thing that drives me just a little bit nuts, it’s when I hear people say, “We just have to accept people for their differences.”
Acceptance isn’t necessarily a good thing. Acceptance sometimes implies that you might really want to change something but can’t so you just give up and accept your fate.
That’s not much of a life lesson for kids.
I truly believe that we need to teach kids to embrace differences. We need to find the positive and highlight it. We need to show them that different is amazing.
