M1-RE with a group of younglings

"Truly wonderful the mind of a child is."
―Yoda[1]

"Youngling" was a term for any child of any species.[2] Force-sensitive younglings who were taken to the Jedi Temple to be trained as Jedi were known as Jedi younglings.[1] Anakin Skywalker once carried out a massacre on a group of Jedi younglings in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, as part of the Great Jedi Purge.[3]

Children needed adult supervision, as they could not take care of themselves on their own. When Din Djarin left the Child aboard the Razor Crest all by himself, Peli Motto admonished the Mandalorian, saying that he couldn't leave a child alone like that and that he had a lot to learn about raising a young one.[4] Bringing kids into gladiator matches was considered inappropriate; when Djarin brought Grogu to the Carnita arena, a spectator pointed out that this was no place for a child, but the Mandalorian merely replied, "Wherever I go, he goes."[5]

As a child, Ben Solo coined a new name for himself but later dismissed it as "stupid." Snoke encouraged Solo to discard his old identity by taking the name that he invented during his childhood. He believed that children did not practice self-deception; therefore, they had only pure thoughts and were true to their nature.[6]

During or after 34 ABY,[7] several different species of younglings were stationed onboard the Youngling Care Space Station. The Safari droid M1-RE, a specialized member of the Galactic Society of Creature Enthusiasts, cared for and studied the younglings.[8] The Safari droid SF-R3 asked M1-RE to show viewers on the Holonet how they could take care of their younglings, and M1-RE did so while being recorded by the cam droid CAM-E.[9]
