Kids Remind Us Why All People Should Be Viewed Through The Eyes Of The Child

Parents and their children were invited to play an educational game in a PSA uploaded to YouTube by French advocacy group Noémi Association.

Sitting side-by-side with a barricade blocking their view of one another, the adults and children were shown images of people contorting their faces into humorous positions. The parents and their kids were told to mimic each face.

The last person shown making a funny face to be mimicked was someone with a disability. Every child continued playing the game lightheartedly, while every parent stopped, expressing looks of concern, sadness and reservation.

“Let’s see the difference with the eyes of a child,” the PSA concludes, encouraging viewers to perceive persons with disabilities as they would anyone else, as the children did.
