    How do I support my son who has vitiligo?

    Our son is depressed because the kids at his school make fun of the appearance of his skin pigmentation. What can I do to help him?

    I'm a mother of a 3 years old who has it too, I feel for you and I know it's hard but we have to deal with it.I'm not an expert I'm just sharing my thaughts with you I think it might be a good idea to educate him about the condition and help him to educate others and let them know that it is not contagious. Focous on other prespective on his personality, his talents or activities. Ted's talks are great if he is old enough, there are some examples of imperfect people who are very successful and inspiring. Or may be have a talk with the teacher at school or even these kids parents'.
