    I have two 2 year old grandchildren, One was born with only one hand I'm used to adults and children doing double takes or staring. When she smaller little kids were curious and would ask me or her What happened to your hand. This reaction was easy to handle but as she is getting older and run through the playground it's the older kids that are bothering me, they will stop and stare at her until she feels self-conscious. Boys are worse in that they follow her to get a closer look. Whats the best way to handle this situation?
