Learning the concept of acceptance is so important for children. Becoming aware of the similarities and differences among people is just the beginning of a child's experience in social growth. Opportunities to understand that diversity makes people unique and individually interesting can help a child to appreciate others early in life. Acts of kindness are not easily forgotten and one of the most wonderful qualities that a person young or old can possess.
