The bad thing that happens if one shows too much of the unfiltered self is that the masks can be going up on the other people, as they find out how much of the real you is indigestible in whatever way for them. So I think it's bilateral. Children don't bring much that others have to be afraid of, by which I guess the correlative point is that adults can indeed have great impact on one another, and there's a skill to learn to use that.
