I Want People To Stop Staring At Disabled Kids

Kids with disabillities and there parents go through so much so i want us all to join forces to educate others about how it feels when they stare 125 People

    My Son Has Dmd

    Some Musings.

    Here are some things/advice for folks that I have found to be helpful. 1)Just walk up to me, I don't bite and I'm not contageous. 2)If I see someone staring, I will engage them in a friendly manner, it gets the staring to stop. I've even made a few friends this way! 3)Humor...

    Personally, I Would Have Preferred Stares To The Beatings.
