  Notes:  
PLAIN FORMS of (Verb, Noun, i and na Adjectives) + からといって
 
文1 からといって、 文2


In general means that " just because 文1 , does not necessarily mean..". Although after the pattern in lots of cases there go negative sentenses (否定形), it is not necessarily always so.

What comes after the pattern showes or explains that in truth it is differ from what could be thought of 文1.

    AmatukaI strongly suggest "'Because he's a kid' doesn't mean I can forgive him." or similar because the present English reads as if "I could forgive him if it wasn't that he's a child" which is exactly the opposite meaning. 
    Heavy-Dlit. "because-however" 
    LittleFish#: Taken from the song "There There" by Radiohead, I sung the Japanese as the chorus when I listened to it, and now I can't forget this piece of grammer.
    (edit:なるほど, thanks)
