One of the best things about children is how they view the world. Rather than have their views warped by discrimination or judgement, they simply see people for who they are rather than how they have been defined by society.

One mother posted an example of how one little boy helped her disabled son feel a sense of belonging and community during a trip to a science museum.

The woman’s young son, Kaden, suffers from spinal muscular atrophy, a debilitating and devastating condition that can lead to breathing problems and skeletal deformities. Young Kaden is confined to a wheelchair.

To the little boy at the science museum, I don't know who you are, but thank you for being amazing. You let my son play... > >

But during the visit, Kaden made a friend at one of the exhibits who didn’t once question his disability and played with him, helping him without making a fuss.

Kaden’s mum wrote in the emotional Facebook post: “To the little boy at the science museum, I don't know who you are, but thank you for being amazing. You let my son play and engage with you. You helped him pick up balls from the floor when you saw that he could not.

“You didn't ask what was wrong with him or why he couldn't walk, you just saw him. Kaden is a lot like you, he is very curious and wildly smart. He wants to know how everything works. Thank you for helping him turn the lever when you noticed he was too weak to do it himself. You will probably never see this but just by being you, you make this world better.”

The post has since had thousands of shares and comments, with many praising the young boy.

One parent wrote: “This young lad is a credit to himself and his family.”

Another wrote: “If either of those boys were my son I'd be very proud.”

So beautiful and inspiring.
