42 This movement for sheltered innocence had a modern cast, emphasizing the roles of professionals and specialized sites of child formation like kindergartens, but it still relied on traditional home-based child training.

This dual relation with the next generation was given fresh meaning in the twentieth century, especially when childhood delight was wed to the world of consumption. At the same time as children were sheltered and removed from the producers’ market, they became an essential part of the market of consumers, a world of delight. This was because parents began to use gifts of entertainment and goods to express the pricelessness of their children in their love and care for them. 32 The Two Faces of Innocence 29 One sign of this revolution in attitudes can be seen in what kind of child was desired in adoptions.
