What I don't find okay is: the constant stares, the "Oh my god, look at her hair!", the "Is it natural, is it permed, is she mixed" questions. Come on. Is she mixed? With what? Elf? And so what? Do I ask people their ethnic heritage? Do I ask people if they perm their hair?

Also, I agree that praising the effort is most important with tasks, a child who gets a "C" in math that is hard earned deserves more *praise* for lack of a better word, than a child who does nothing and gets an "A".
