Title Childhood Innocence Degree of recognition National Media name/outlet ABC Media type Radio Duration/Length/Size 10 minutes Country/Territory Australia Date 24/02/11 Description Children's innocence is considered both sacrosanct, and constantly under threat.
But a consumer culture that encourages sexualisation of children, and myriad other threats, makes adults very anxious.
Our next guest argues that that anxiety is misplaced, and that 'innocence' may not be so relevant.
Not only that: the celebration of innocence might be downright dangerous for children.
