Thine, not mine.

The kids already know;  It's not our future, it's theirs.

We think kids won't be prepared for the future.  Of course we can never know how to best prepare them for their challenges.

Hey parents, please don't tell them everything.  With current sustainability and resource constraints the human future will accept only a very small, highly adapted population.   Many scientists know this to be true, they just don't know when this will unfold.  

And I have no idea how to prepare kids - but I suspect and often am surprised to learn their solutions are starting to congeal.  For instance, they say they know they face big problems - but seem to have boundless hope and visions for a boundaryless world.
