2. Accept each other: Imagine how much closer every family would be if everyone was accepted for who they actually are, not criticized for who they're not and never will be. Watch this extraordinarily moving TED Talk by Andrew Solomon about loving children who are different and get inspired to be more accepting and loving of those around you.
