Is there a word that can be used in place of concerned, but that doesn't imply that something is wrong, or that the individual is worried?
For instance, the following sentence:
A concerned parent will ask a child what happened during school that day.
means that the parent is worrying about the child, and may be afraid something had happened at school. Is there a different adjective to describe the parent that shows that they are asking because they are interested in what happened during the day, not worried.
