Subject: Not Enough Tolerance in this World
Reply: read original | add to Watch List | reply
People make fun of others who have disabilities because they have not been taught by their parents to be tolerant of others that are different - no matter what disability they have, the color of their skin, their age, what religion they are or how they dress. Parents need to do a better job instilling tolerance in their children. This is a parent's ethical responsibility to make the world a better place by teaching their children tolerance and respect.

As a parent of a disabeled child, I have first hand knowledge that this issue is a tough one and being that, if we think we are even going to make a dent in the behavior, we cannot let the lessons end at the front door to our homes. It is up to all of us, in particular those that are in the position of influence, like those in the education system who themselves often carry forward messages of intolerance, to carry positive messages forward instead. Most of this descrimination is so deepely ingrained that people, even those with the best of intentions, do not even realize they are doing it. This is a form of institutional descrimination that is difficult to end.
