Modesty only begins with the knowledge of evil. : he was a philosopher who had a lot to say about children, he believed that they are pure and innocent and life/growing up will corrupt them, he made these ideas really popular. Idealizing innocence: special time (considered very precious and special, fostering and prolonging innocence, we want to try and hold onto it for as long as possible, when they are exposed to difficulties, it is said that they lost their innocence too soon. C) some consequences or effects: protecting children, ignorance, vulnerability = innocence, victimhood, wanting to protect them by keeping them in the dark from many things, if we do not talk to children about these things (racism, discrimination, religion, etc. ), they may not be able to cope with them later on. Innocence can lead to a lack of skills and may seem like a great thing but isn"t always so great.
