Can you please ask your kids not to stare
Answered 3 months ago
I’m a disability support worker and children are always staring at my client. I get natural curiosity and I understand if it’s a very young child staring but kids who are aged around 6 and over should know better. My client is aware she looks different and the stares upset her so much it leads to mental distress. If you see your kid staring, ask them to stop and then have a chat to them later about it.

It is also helpful to engage in conversation with the participant when this happens, they need to build resilience as this is an issue that will not go away.
