Kids in my neighborhood are wearing masks just fine

My street is like 80% elementary school kids. My subdivision is nearly as high... 2 out of every 3 houses has 1-3 elementary kids, I'd say. Hundreds of kids here, and whenever we see them out, they're wearing masks when in indoor settings in any kind of public situation (grocery/retail stores), and even wearing masks in larger group settings (4th of July when walking around to see fireworks, etc). Some have had driveway events and required masks for art viewing/puppet shows/garage sales/lemonade sales, etc. Basically every kid that could walk and talk has learned to wear masks.

We just went to Austin for a few days, and our hotel required masks inside and so did any places we went to (Austin Zoo required masks even outside, and the aquarium required them inside). So my kids had masks on for hours that day and never complained. Entering 4th grade and 2nd grade. They're experienced enough now to use their elbows or backs to push open doors/elbows to push elevator buttons, etc.

I don't know that you're giving these kids enough credit... They've been training since March for this...
