I see a lot of adults lauding the children for their leadership.

These kids shouldn’t have to parent their adults.

I like children participating, but if they have to lead, that means the adults aren’t doing their jobs. You shouldn’t have to use them to say things to their uncles and aunts that you are too afraid to say to your cousins. Kids should be participating, but they shouldn’t have to lead this. That they are thrust into leadership is a failure of the adults.

America needs a better class of adults.
