Description

This chapter will compare two religious perspectives on children, child upbringing, and parents´ roles in the child's life. A religion´s perspective on childhood is deeply connected with its overall ideology. Two very different minority religions – the Osho Movement and the Jehovah´s Witnesses – have been chosen to demonstrate the vast range of difference a religious upbringing may entail. The material consists of primary texts from the two religious groups which will be analyzed thematically. Based on the results, Diana Baumrind´s model of four parenting styles – authoritative, authoritarian, permissive-indulgent, and permissive-uninvolved parenting – will be discussed.
