Childhood is a modern invention. Before the 1900’s we didn’t have any concise laws or organizations to protect children. As a result, children were treated like second class citizens and often exploited. They worked difficult jobs adults couldn’t, or wouldn’t, do and they were often were severely injured, or killed in work place accidents.
After the turn of the century, people began to realize that children should not be exploited and abused in this way. People began to realize that it stunted society to not acknowledge the importance of childhood development. It became obvious that exploiting the innocents in society keeps the population at a lower, primitive level.
