solution is simple: don't watch it. if kids ask, tell them she was just born that way. people get way too sensitive about these things and they tend to become blind to fact that they're throwing fits over stupid matters

i think its the parents that have the hard time eepting people who appear differint and its better for kids to learn to be exepting and learn stuff like that at an early age....like said on the video

A quick explanation is all it takes & kids move on. It's the grown ups that are trouble makers! It's times like these I miss Mr Rogers- he had such a terrific way of explaining things.
To the grown ups he'd probably say "The kids take their cues from you. If you treat someone who is different with prejudice, you are teaching them that differences are bad or scary and this is going to turn them into prejudiced adults who don't know how to act around people who are different. If they see someone with a handicap sometimes all it takes is a quick explanation and to be available when they have questions."

My brother had a friend with an arm like that. We stared (or tried to hide our staring) for maybe the first couple of minutes after we met him, then we forgot about it. He was born that way, too.

If anything, I think it's important for kids to get acquainted, even if only through TV, with a person who has a disability so that they can get past it. I'm sure every kid who sees her for the first time stares, but over time, they'll forget about her arm and pay attention to the person she is.

(papasmurfe-"wow so british people are te least excepting people in the worlds? 4uck you brits, go complain about your tea and teeth, lil bitches")

Aw, is it cuz we wouldn't have sex with you, cuz your such a demented individual?! Ha Ha!

I am sick of seeing sh*tty comments like this. If you loathe the British so much, I'm sure there are websites that cater for you and the trauma you've so 'obviously' endured that make you such a hater.

So p*ss off somewhere else and leave I-A-B for the important issues....

you took the words right out of my mouth

the kids will see things like this in everyday life anyway

how over-protected do parents want their kids to be?

do they want their children to be ignorant to these kinds of things?

fu.cking idiots.

is it me or does her left arm look really long? could be because she is missing her right though.

Anyway I highly doubt the kids are actually scared by this maybe a little creeped out.. but sheesh if your kids don't want to watch don't make them what is the big deal?

That's the problem with a lot of people they don't like something they whine about it, boycott it whatever and the big companies or tv shows or what have you fold to those few whiners and complainers. So what you dont' like something don't watch it, don't drink it, don't use it. just deal with it!!!
Here is America people wouldn't say anything because everything is so politically correct over here it sickens me.

I know you guys must've made a good case for the fact that these parents suck... as parents, but I gotta say, come the heck on.

"No honey, it's okay to be scared of people who are different. I'll complain for you and encourage them to fire her despite the fact that she's overcome adversity."

I really hated to see this story. I did like how the guy called it a "veneer of acceptance." Like they said, how about making this just another opportunity to learn and care about others?

Again, I know most of the people on this board are pretty sharp, but I had to put my 2 cents in as well.

Oh, and maybe this'll give kids an opportunity to teach their parents about NOT discriminating.

MIGHT SCARE THE KIDS? WTH? stupid ignorant bastards, they try and protect there "little darlings" by trying to make them oblivious to the world... would they do that if one of their kids had a friend in pre-school with a similar defect? NO! THEY WOULDNT! hounding the BBC about this woman who obviously wishes to make children happy and understanding of the world around them is only going 2 make there kids more and more ignorant and push this country even more into a poo hole
i bet there kids are gonna grow up to be wonderful little sacks of poo

People are just so stupid sometimes. Seriously, they're freaking out about someone with a birth defect 'scaring' their kids, when they should be more worried about whether their kids are learning, watching good programs instead of violent or stupid ones, and growing healthy mind. Learning about people who are different, whether physically, race, disability, or whatever, is a VERY important part of growing up. To avoid it is unhealthy and breeds a terrible attitude of fear and discrimination. It's the parents who are afraid, not the kids.

I have a 3 year old who watches this show sometimes and he didn't even notice. He certainly wasn't scared by it. Stupid bigoted parents.

Ohhh my God I hate the ignorance of those parents.. Ignorance is sick, especially when people like that make no attempt at accepting and learning more.

it is sad that the world is looking for thins to whine about like a tv host with a birth defect, they spend so much tome debating things instead of learning and trying to make things to better life or help stop birth defects like this one, and look at what were all doing, were whining about people whining, its not like we can do anything about others opinions, just face it, some people are bigots who want the world to fit there views because they are the only ones with the correct views

When I was five there was a girl at my school that was born with one arm also, quite like this lady. I wasn't freaked out about it.

I agree with Pilanus. Basically the one parent is saying, how am I supposed to explain to my 3 year old that there are different people in the world.
