So my DD is always saying what I deem as inappropriate things when it comes to pointing out how people are 'different'. I know it is just her age and I do try to help her understand that it is impolite to point it out infront of people.....but Im really unsure how to handle it when it comes to children with special needs.
As parents of special needs children, do you get angry when you see children whispering to their mums/dads and looking at your child? Would you prefer that we shushed them up and walked away, or came up and asked questions so they could get a better understanding and therefor wouldnt think they were so 'different'..(I hate that word).
What would you like to say to the mum so they could better inform their child? Or do you wish we'd all just leave you alone to shop...?
Sorry if this is an inappropriate thread....im just really wanting to know the best way to handle this.
