Most children take such things in their stride, so much of life is a new experience to them. It will give children the chance to see from an early age that we can be different and that we should be tolerant of difference. I find it incredible that some parents could be so cruel to this poor girl, it's not her fault she was born with only part of an arm, can you imagine if that was an ex-soldier, the outrage would be enormous and justifiably so. Her presence on the BBC should give hope to disabled servicemen and civilians alike, there is normalcy to be had and there are plenty of employers willing to employ the disabled.
