The documentary follows the rumspringa of four Amish 16 year-olds whom experience the English world for the first time. Soon they have to make the most important decision of their lives: to make a life long vow to the Amish community, or choose to live the English way and be shunned by all members of their family and community alike. Although this is a religious custom in the Amish tradition, there are detrimental effects that do occur after rumspringa due to the Amish isolation from multiple modern phenomena. According to the Amish, they support their children going on rumspringa so the teens can eliminate any need of curiosity or interest they have with the English. At the end of rumspringa, the Amish teens have the opportunity to officially be baptized into the Amish religion/lifestyle with the correct intentions, and begin the new process of socializing as an important contributing member to society.
Do they get on their knees and follow God and their parents' beliefs for the rest of their lives or do they follow society and do what they want to do with their life? The Amish culture has followed a set of beliefs and rituals for hundreds of years. They believe they must praise God and not themselves. They follow the tradition of keeping apart from the rest of the world, and devoting their lives to God and work. They restrict the use of any electrical equipment and keep their lifestyle simple to have more time to think about God's creation.
The Microsystem because my family and my religious ways have made me develop into the adult I am today. My family sees life has an open window; anything can come in and out, it’s up to the person to only let the good come in and the bad stay out. What Bronfenbrenner explains is true when he states that, “each of these interactions may range from excellent to poor” (Bronfenbrenner, 1979). Any type of relationship has it’s ups and it’s downs. | The Macrosystem I would say have influenced me the most all while growing up.
The movie, “Devil’s Playground” gives a glimpse into the Amish way of life and how the transition into adulthood is approached. The Amish religion was established in 1693 and is based on fundamentals of separation and isolation from the surrounding community. This is in attempt to prevent external influences and temptations of a wordly manner. Anything that disrupts their community, basic ways of living, or their commitment to their God and their religion is discouraged including, but not limited too, televisions, cell phones, radios, electricity, cars, and so forth. At the age of sixteen, the Amish allow their children to have the opportunity to have a period of basically unlimited freedom.
Christian Thoughts and Apologetics Anna Thompson Project one Christian Thoughts and Apologetics Anna Thompson Project one Jesus Camp Charles Swindoll once wrote, “Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.” Though we would hope to give all of our children fond memories to hold on to, the main character of Jesus Camp instills emotional distress in the lives of children. Jesus Camp is a documentary intended to shed light upon an evangelistic camp known as "Kids on Fire School of Ministry", lead by Becky Fisher, and questions the beliefs that are taught and how they impact the lives of the children there. The film makes you question the intentions of Becky as she preaches on subjects that may be inappropriate for young children. The question is posed as to why parents would allow their children to be under the leadership of such an eccentric woman who seems to only have selfish intentions for these kids. The children in this film seem to be terrorized into a belief rather than led as most religions might encourage.
The Amish’s most important aspect of their way of life is their religion. The Amish religion defines who they are and why they choose to live apart from the dominant culture in society as we know it. The Amish separate themselves from an every day natural culture that most Americans find strange such as, they do not vote and they do not believe in having phones within their residences. The Amish people have not changed their way of life too much in the recent years from what they've always been used to. Their religious values, controlling use of technologies, sustaining gender roles and family, education, work life, and resistance to cultural change remain as their fundamental purpose in the way they have chosen to live their every day lives.
The whole act of parenting is tied up in an attempt to control which values we, as children pick up and copy, and to get rid of the values, or ideas they hope we will avoid. We see it every single day – our parents restricting the language we use, or the friends we hang out with, the music we listen to, or even if we go to church or not, depending on what is socially acceptable. (CONTINUE WITH ANOTHER POINT…) Why then, do parents WORLDWIDE still feel that allowing their young, impressionable children to watch Disney Princess films is a good idea? The messages conveyed are ones of sexual stereotypes, gender power games, and the importance of physical beauty. For example, Snow White- her budding sexuality is a threat to another woman, so she is murdered.
On the contrary Kenneth refuses to go back to school and get his GED, or even his High school diploma. Kenneth knows he needs to go back to school, and better himself. Both Kendall and Kenneth grow up in the church and were always taught by our grandmother that God is the source of our very existence. Kenneth no longer attends church, and refuses to talk about what God has done for him, while Kendall on the other hand, has surrendered to the ministry and wants to one day start his own ministry, and help others. Kendall enjoys telling others what the Lord has done for him.

TOPIC: Civilize Them with a Stick The aspects of life in which government’s desire to transform Native Americans in government boarding school include the willingness to indoctrinate them with Christianity by having a Christian lifestyle - one wife for life only, go to church often and regularly; learning the value of a hard-earned dollar by working hard with most due frugality; have faith that property and wealth are signs of divine approval and send their children to school to do likewise. Meanwhile, a student is also expected to speak the language of a fellow white brother and inculcate his lifestyle as well, by working hard and washing often. A student should be punctual and not spend lavishly on giveaways. Equally important is the desire
