Children dont have the same filter between their brains and their mouths that adults do, and if you need evidence of that, just think back to any moment of embarrassment caused by your childs ultra-honesty.

However, according to author Kari Kay, it is not only possible to teach them to be more accepting, but its also possible to condition those who are different to accept themselves, as well.
