Sensitive Child

Recently I was a visiting author at a school in Mesa.
A second-grade boy raised his hand. “Does it hurt you when the editor wants to change what you wrote?”
I asked, “Do you mean, does it hurt my feelings?”
He said, “Yes.”
I thought fast and said, “No, it doesn’t because I want the book to be the very best it can be, so I welcome suggestions.”
