I'm a Dad who's kid is still a year or two from causing me this
particular headache, and I totally agree.

But there's a fatal flaw in this idea: It requires active parenting.
When educating their children has to cover all sorts of uncomfortable
grown-up subjects, parents will look for Somebody Else to Do Something.

The only reason this latest proposal is DOA is because of technical
problems. It's simply not going to work. It will be an expensive and
hopefully embarrassing failure.
