Stop Scaring America’s Children

Stop Scaring America’s Children. Teach the Children Well.

In the children’s book “Our House Is on Fire”: young Greta Thunberg’s call to Save the Planet, a picture book aimed at children ages 3-8 she says. “There might not be a world to live in when she grows up. “What use is school without a future?” America’s children read those sentences and become scared and disempowered for a future for themselves and this world. The political thinking and scare rhetoric on climate is frightening and demoralizing our young children’s minds and hearts. Telling America’s children that a dreary, lifeless future awaits them is simply unconscionable and evil.

Teach the Children Well. Go to school, love life, be kind to everyone, learn and you will have an opportunity to live in awe and wonder each day

This incessant indoctrination of doom and despair must end. “You see children saying things like ‘The world’s going to burn up, we’re all going to be dead in 20 years,’’ We must change our thinking, change our words and change our world. The new words and message to our young children must be positive. It must be, go to school, love life, be kind to everyone, learn and you will have an opportunity to live in awe and wonder each day. You will grow up strong and change the world. Let them know they have the power to do great things for themselves, their family, and all of humanity.
