Parents should teach their children early in life never to stare at another, disabled child (or adult). If they are curious, train them to approach the `disabled`, tell their name, and if they want, ask if the person minds telling them what their disbility is. Explain to your children that disabilities are caused by accidents and illnesses, and inside they are like everyone else. It really is important that children learn these courtesies early in life.
