Children in New Religions by Palmer, Susan J.

What is it like to grow up in a cult? The late 1960s and early 1970s constituted a remarkable period for spiritual experimentation and the proliferation of new religious groups. Today, a second generation has come of age and, in some groups, outnumber adults. While the parents made the decision as adults to drop out of mainstream society and embrace alternative religious goals, the children have been raised with a very different orientation toward the larger society. They were born into religious communities they took for granted, and have grown up assimilating their evolving subcultures, many of them gazing with curiosity at the surrounding society it was never their choice to reject. Contributors to this volume provide an international ethnographic examination of a topic about which we know very little-how do members of new religious movements raise their young and what are the implications of this type of alternative childhood
