Some people say that childhood is the safest period of human life, whereas others consider that it is not safe at all.

I think that childhood is indeed the safest period of human life. First of all, parents protect children from all the troubles they can get into. For example, parents feed their children, watch them all the time to make sure nothing bad happens to them. Secondly, society gives children a lot of rights. For instance, if a child is being mistreated by the someone the society interferes and makes sure it does not happen again. Moreover, I also believe that it is a part of human nature to treat children with care and love.

At the same time there are people who think that childhood is not really safe. Children are physically weak and can get into a lot of troubles. They still know very little about life and can easily put their lives in danger because of lack of experience.

In my opinion yes children are weak compared with adults, nevertheless adults are there to protect them. Even if children do not have enough experience,  society shares its experience with them.

In conclusion, I would like to say that if one looks at this question in terms of what the safest period of our lives is and investigates this question from various angles and only then adds up all the pros and cons, they will definitely see that it is childhood. A lot of grown-ups dream of coming back to where they were safe and protected, their childhood.
