Audrey French on When to Move Family From the City to the Suburbs

In Chapter 20 of 21 in her 2014 Capture Your Flag interview, new mother Audrey Parker French answers "What Factors Did You Consider in Your Decision to Relocate From the City to the Suburbs?" French shares how becoming parents and having a child has profoundly reshaped her and her husband's priorities for what they value in life. Whereas city life was attractive to them before having a baby, now as parents they see suburban life as optimal to bring family closer and expose kids to a child-dense environment to grow up.
