The world is full of differences and this is something that makes us grow internally since we can see that in life each one is how they are and is something that must be understood and respected. But in this society of superficial values sometimes the fact of having differences in oneself can be a reason for low self-esteem in children, something that must be solved from home.
The differences in oneself does not have to be a bad thing (both internal and external) and is that many times the difference is what really makes life interesting. In addition, the differences between people enriches us and makes us see that not everything is how we think. But how to teach this to children?

Help others even if they are different. Love your children, your family and respect others. If there are differences, always look at it from the positive side, for example if your son is very tall tell him that he will be able to reach places where others cannot.
