Those writing about rumschpringe often imply that the Amish raise their children strictly, but when those children enter their rumschpringe, they let them run wild, allowing them to indulge freely in drinking, drugs, parties, sex, etc. Yes, some teens, regardless of how they’ve been raised, will break free of all their parents hold dear and act in unbecoming ways. Does that mean the parents throw open the door and encourage their children to sow their wild oats while they can? During my times of staying with the Old Order Amish, I’ve witnessed the parents allowing their teens to express their personalities.
