The One Thing You Should Do When You Encounter Someone "Different"
By Blessed by Brenna on May 20, 2014
After I wrote about getting a lot of stares during Connor's swim lessons, the one question I received over and over was: "what should we do when we see someone with a visual difference?"I thought about all of the various ways people have approached Brenna and reacted to her. And I asked dozens of other ichthyosis families and friends who have children with special needs.And there were a lot of different answers - some appreciate questions, while others don't want their kids to have to field questions all day long. But I think everyone's preference can be summed up with one main action.When you meet, encounter or see someone who looks different, you should do one thing: Treat them as you would anyone else. . . .
