In At Odds, Carl Degler (1980) called the nineteenth century the "century of childhood," and attributed change in child-rearing methods to the emerging perception of children. "Children began to be seen as different from adults; among other things they were considered now more innocent; childhood itself was perceived as it is today, as a period of life not only worth recognizing and cherishing but extending. Moreover, simply because children were being seen for the first time as special, the family's reason for being, its justification as it were, was increasingly related to the proper rearing of children" (Degler 1980:66).

Many Progressive programs bore a special responsibility to supervise, control, "Americanize," and assimilate immigrant youth into the dominant culture. The Lives of Young People before the Invention of Adolescence Before the Renaissance, people did not share common age-graded experiences or differentiate among themselves especially on the basis of age (Aries 1962; deMause 1974). Many infants born did not survive beyond their first birthdays, and adults treated young children with relative indifference.

Aries (1962) traced the modernizing of the family and childhood to the upper bourgeois and nobility in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, when their indifference to their offspring began to diminish. Edward Shorter (1975) associated maternal willingness among the upper classes in the 1700s to care for their own children with a decline in mercenary extramural wet nursing and a reduction in infant morality rates. Postman (1994) noted that churchmen and moralists in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries advocated greater responsibility for parents to raise their own children, to oversee their education, to restrict their indiscriminate contact with nonfamily members, and to protect their innocence.
