Dear Kvellers —
As a web site that is by and for parents, it is not rare for us to publish a story featuring a perspective we don’t agree with. We all have our parenting preferences, and we feel it’s important to show points of view that are different from ours. This week, we published a story, “I’m Taking My Family to a Covid-19 Hotspot for Vacation. Here’s Why.,” that presented a perspective on travel during the pandemic that we don’t agree with or condone, but we felt illuminated a decision that many American families are making.
We’ve heard your feedback about the piece being irresponsible and possibly encouraging people to make similar choices. Our community is of utmost value to us, which is why we decided to pull the piece. It’s not a decision we take lightly, but we feel like it’s the right choice in these circumstances.
Thank you for being a part of our incredible community!
