I was proofreading a high school literature textbook and came across this question, and I started wondering what moms would think.
"Parents, of course, have a huge commitment to their children. But what is the responsibility of a community to its young? A familiar African proverb staes, "It takes a village to be a cild." (That proverb has sort of been usurped for political reasons as of late.)
What about a soccer or baseball coach? A scout leader? A teacher? An aunt or uncle, or a family friend?
