1.6.1 A. Worker as protector
Young people are not yet full people. They are essentially rather weak and helpless and need a lot of nurturing and caring for. They also need protecting from the traps and many potential evils of society. Society is increasingly complex and they need guidance to find their way around. It's the adults’ job to provide this nurturing and protection and to ‘prepare them for life’ until they in turn become adults and will play their own part in moulding the next generation.
