Children see differences quite clearly. Perhaps clearer than most adults at times. Watch this clip and see what happens when these children were asked “What makes you different from each other?”

A super cute video from children’s network CBeebies , is touching on how children view differences.
Friends from all walks of life are asked the question “What makes you two different from each other?” and they’re responses are quite telling, not to mention heartwarming.
In the clip, these young children prove that issues such as race or ability are in actual fact, a non issue. True to the nature of children, they prove that they view differences such as living on top of a hill as opposed to living at the bottom of the hill a far more pressing issue.
The issue of loving tomato sauce versus only liking it. The clear difference of loving goujan and chips as opposed to sushi. The fact that one child lives in a house with squirrels in the roof, and one child does not. This is the diversity that small children reach for when pressed for answers. Not colour. Not race. Nor ability.
It’s part of a BBC campaign celebrating diversity called “Everyone’s Welcome.”
“From lettuce love (and hate!) to hard-hitting opinions on ketchup and toe size, these kids know what’s important ― friendship, openness and respecting each other’s differences, a lesson we can all learn from,” BBC Children’s Director Alice Webb wrote.
