Kimberley O’Brien was commissioned by Men’s Health Magazine to write about the curliest questions kids ask with reporters at Men’s Health Magazine. You can find out more about answering your children’s questions about disability by visiting our resources page or discussing it on our forum.

The column gives parents brief and practical tips to address questions, such as this month´s curly question in the October 2008 edition: `Daddy…Why is that man shaking?`

The full article is available below.

Why they´re asking?

According to Kimberley, kids spot differences and have not learnt to be subtle in their reactions like adults.

How to respond

Regain your composure, then be clear, informative and empathetic. Encourage children to see things from the other person´s perspective and look information up on the web together.

The pay-off for providing an unambiguous response

Saves awkward moments in the future and teaches children about differences to help them be more comfortable with their own individuality. Kimberley believes, `self assured, community-minded young people can change the world`.

And lastly, a recommended reference to engage your child

Hooray for Diffendoofer Day! ; a book by Dr. Suess celebrating differences at school where kids think for themselves and teachers walk on their hands.
