Taboo [electronic resource]: Child Rearing

National Geographic Television & Film
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
It may be the single greatest cause of disagreement, and even moral disdain, between family members, neighbors, and entire nationalities-but the way we raise our children is also tied to deeply ingrained beliefs and traditions. This program examines the subject, focusing on wide disparities between cultures in the matter of parenting and child-rearing. From India's Tihar prison, where some inmates raise their sons and daughters behind bars, to Sumatra, where children experience an unusual degree of freedom, the video presents eye-opening cultural contrasts.
