Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "Why Do We Judge Parents For Putting Kids At Perceived — But Unreal — Risk?" by Tania Lombrozo for NPR.

In “Why Do We Judge Parents For Putting Kids At Perceived – But Unreal – Risks?” Tania Lombrozo interviews three researchers on their experiment that explores how people evaluate and respond to the perceived risks that parents expose their children to. 

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Growing Up, Justice, Freedom & Equality, and Morality as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"What is good and how do we know?", "What does it mean to be grown up?", and "What is fair?"
