Children forced to grow up too fast, warns Archbishop of Canterbury
Dr Rowan Williams told the congregation at Canterbury Cathedral that children should not be rushed to stand on their own two feet and that their dependence on others should be "celebrated and safeguarded".
The theme was also touched upon by Archbishop Vincent Nicols, the leader of Roman Catholics in England and Wales, who said many youngsters were resorting to gangs and gang violence as a way of bolstering their weakened sense of identity.

Now that it has become necessary for mothers to go out and work for a living, there is not much society is prepared to do to prevent children growing up without guidance. Mammon is a demanding god and requires his disciples to give their lives entirely to him. This is the price of modern society membership. Children then must follow suit and get to earning fast. One of the reasons for this worldly following is Rowan Williams own religion of Liberalism which puts the onus upon man for salvation, hence the need for human endeavours.
