This chapter turn sattention to the shrinking territory young people are permitted to roam in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, due to protection is teliding of participation. "Islanding" in 1920s and 1930s comic strips and later Robins on adesis contextualized with in analysis of protections. By the twenty-first century the sentimentalized suppression of youth was fascinatingly demonstrated by the popularity and corporate sponsorship of competitive teensailors attempting global circumnavigation, as well as a corresponding protectionist legal and media backlash. In the failure of Abby Sunder land's global venture (with much parent-blaming) and Laura Dekker's success (inspite of immensepersecution from child protectionists), the author considers these subtler consequences of protectionist premises.
