Due to an editor’s error, the letter by Dawn Perlner ’01 entitled “Parental Responsibility” [Feb. 5] contained an incomplete sentence. It should have read:

“If her parents had been notified about her problems, they could have either talked to her about it, which would probably embarrass her and only add to her stresses, making her death even more imminent, or take it into account without letting her know they knew... in which case, their only benefit would be knowing ahead of time that she would probably succeed at some point in killing herself.”
