Being Comfortable Being Different

Don’t miss the wonderful piece in our December issue, “It’s Okay To Stare,” by Meg Zucker. This mother of three was born with a rare condition called ectrodactyly, and has only one finger on each hand, shortened forearms, and one toe on each foot. Her two sons, Ethan and Charlie, have the same condition, and they have become accustomed to other kids being curious about their unusual hands. In working with Meg on this piece, I was struck by her own comfort level and confidence, and what a terrific role model she is for her sons. Her article isn’t just about her own family, but shares valuable lessons for all of us about the best ways to help our children interact with people who look or act different.
