I am worried. Not about whether my son will be a good kid or not because I know that he will. I am not worried about rising debt in the U.S.A. something tells me it will work itself out. I am not worried about some sex predator taking my child, we live in a safe neighborhood (until I put my guard down). I am not worried about some maniac walking into my son’s daycare and shooting the kids. I am not worried about all of that because those are things I can not control. There is something more concerning to me.
Will our planet be able to sustain life when my son is an adult?
I have always been worried about our planet. 2 years ago the region I live in was faced with flooding and just this past year we were and still are facing a drought. One can not help but think about our planet when we hear things like this. I think about it with every diaper I change. I think about it ever time I use a plastic bag to pick up my dog’s poo.
My wife and I try to set an example. We recycle but I wonder is that enough? Will one cardboard box or one plastic milk carton help?
I do not want to leave this problem to my son’s generation. They will face their own set of problems that we pass off to them. He will have to worry about which care home to send me to and how he is going to pay for his kids college education.
While we live in a scary world, when you think about what will happen with a planet that is continually over heating planet (whether you call it global warming, climate change, or a warm cycle) it is even more worrisome.
What are you doing to teach your kids to be more environmentally sound?
