I need a new word

I've been using the word "paedophobia" - fear of children - to describe National's policies. Though I suppose technically its "ephebiphobia" - fear of teenagers. But these policies are going beyond phobos, fear, and into misos, hate.

So, Ancient Greek speakers and classics majors, how do I combine misos and ephebos? What's the children and young person's equivalent of "misogyny"? Misepheby? Misopaedy?
