To the authors:
Thank you for the essay, “What If…”. It’s a good and thoughtful response to a question that a lot of AP parents probably get asked, even if it’s just implied.
I also appreciated “The Way It’s Supposed to Be”. It’s a great reminder that raising children isn’t something we do ‘by the book’!
