3. Such a nice remembrance. And, kids can also learn to be tolerant of others who aren't.

Growing up with a disabled father, my brothers and I often witnessed other kids, and adults, reacting in an unenlightened way.

We'd ignore it, or sometimes turn the comment on it's head. It might go like this: Kid: "Wow, you dad is driving the car with his foot?!?" Me: Yup, don't you wish your dad could do that?

But, yes, kids can be extra aware and caring. When you see your own kids being empathetic, it does fill you with pride.
