You know those other parents? The ones who drive their kid the four blocks to school in their SUV? The ones who sued the school district because their kid wasn’t labeled gifted? The ones whose children are scheduled every minute of every day? The ones who don’t let their kids watch Star Wars because they might find the violence upsetting? The ones who insist that school snacks are free of gluten, genetically modified organisms, and genetically modified gluten?

As emotionally able, as complex, as kind, as outgoing, as open to experience as our kids. That’s how.
