INNOCENCE IN CHILDHOOD

Innocence is basically a word that you can only apply to children and young teenagers who don’t have a clue about the world. They believe that everything will turn out right no matter what you do and no matter what happens to them, they are happy. If a parent dies, they are sad for a while, but then they believe that the person that is gone watches over them and is happy all of the time, so the child slowly heals and thinks that the world is a bunch of roses again.

As a child, you often think that the biggest problem in the world is that you’ve lost your lunch money and you have to go to the office and borrow some money, before getting your mother to pay it back. That is how innocent a child is in our society. They never really pick up on the big things in life, like how they have to get good grades in school or what they are going to be when they grow up to be adults. Life as a child is easy because they just ignore the fact that there are bad things in life. They always think that life is good and that it will get better as you grow older.

Children are so innocent that they always say “when I grow up I want to be a doctor.” Or “when I grow up I want to marry a millionaire and then I won’t have to work.” What they don’t realise is that they have to work very hard to be a doctor and that it isn’t that easy to find a millionaire who wants to marry you. They are too innocent to realise that they might not get their dream job because they didn’t study enough and so they couldn’t get into the course, they just think that they’ll automatically get changed into a doctor over night when they leave school. That is how innocent a child is, they never think that there is hard work in life.

Innocence means that they don’t really know what is going on in the real world. That basically applies to children, but it could apply to young teenagers like me who live in the middle of nowhere. Children react to what they see, and if they don’t see anything bad happen to them, they think that there is absolutely nothing worse in the world than falling over in the playground and scraping their knee. That is basically one of the worst things in the world for a small child. It doesn’t mean that they are totally oblivious to the outside world, but it means that they are not as aware of the world as adults are.

Being aware of the world can mean lots of different things. Children quite often understand things that adults will have forgotten how to understand. For example, children know straight away when a friend of there is upset, but a lot of the time, adults can’t even figure out if they are upset themselves. So it really depends on the way that you mean to say the word ‘innocence’ because children are not altogether innocence inside and outside, but they do have innocence because they basically have no worries. They might worry about getting beaten up in the school playground, but they don’t normally worry about it too much.

The innocence of childhood can be easily taken away and it often is nowadays. Children that are abused or have really bad things happen to them at about the age of 6 and up often start to act differently and their innocence is stolen, making them act older and that steals away their childhood. After all, the biggest part of childhood is the child’s innocence. If it wasn’t for innocence, there wouldn’t be any children in the world. We would just have a whole lot of young adults and there wouldn’t be as much laughter as there is now with the children of this world.

Innocence is the most important part of childhood. We have to make sure that a child’s innocence is never taken away from them.

  1. Innocence in childhood is a good thing. I know many and see many whom, through circumstance of chance or, more often, the adults in their life, loose their innocence too early. Would that all children could be innocent. From your words to God’s ear. 🙂
