    bamboo4In #5844, 大人でさえ知らない事は should be changed to read: 大人でさえ知らないし 
    nanashiThe English is wonky. How about "It is impossible for children to know about this matter that even adults don't know."? For bamboo4's suggestion: "Even adults don't know about this thing, so it's impossible that children would know it." 
    ありがとう,
    bamboo さん and nanashi さん. I just noticed the awkwardness of the English translation.
    bamboo is correct if it follows the English translation precisely. So is nanashi .
    " It is even more unlikely for children to know about this matter that even adults don't know"
