In the book “Catcher in the Rye” how does Holden perceive Childhood?

We're reading the Catcher in the Rye and we have to write an essay about how Holden perceives childhood. I'm thinking about Holden perceiving Childhood as innocent however I need some quotes to prove this. I'm having great difficulty finding any quotes to support this. Any quotes that you can find from the book would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you could give a brief analysis for this quote like what it means and its significance of showing how Holden perceives Childhood it would be really useful. Please include page numbers too! Thx in advance :)

    page 158 he says “Certain things should stay the way they are.” meaning like his doesn’t want to enter the phony adult world.Page 224 he talks about the kids going off the cliff and ow he wants to be the catcher in the rye to catch them and save them from the phoniness and let them keep their innocence. then at the end when he finally gives up his catcher in the rye idea he says “The thing with kids is if they want to grab for the golden right you have to let them do it and not say anything. If they fall off they fall off but it’s bad if you say anything to them” and thats like hoe he has to let them become who they are but he hopes that they see what he sees about becoming an adult and stay immature like he is.
