Their cute answers are sparking some controversy.

In a culture of so much division, it can sometimes feel like we have nothing in common with one another. It can be helpful to get some new perspective, and these kids might be here to help.

These kids were asked to describe what made them different from one another, and from favorite foods to the size of their toes, the answers they gave were applauded by many for displaying an innocence so often missing in adults.

Others, however, have said that those lauding the video might be missing the point: differences are not a bad thing. Upworthy posted, saying, “Don’t shy away or shush children talking about differences. […] Our differences make us strong. Our differences make us unique. And our differences make us beautiful.”

What do you think? Do parents need to re-think the way they talk to their kids about difference?
