Transcript of Puritan Children
Puritan Children How were Puritan children expected to behave? In 1692, children were expected to behave under the same strict code as the adults. By doing chores, attending church services, and repressing individual differences. Any show of emotion, such as excitement, fear, or anger, was discouraged, If you disobeyed then you would be severely punished. Were there different circumstances for boys and girls? Unlike young girls, boys had a few ways to express themselves. They often worked as apprentices outside the home, practicing skills in carpentry or crafts. Boys were also allowed to explore the outdoors, hunting and fishing. But, girls were expected to tend to the house, helping their mothers cook, wash, clean, and sew. What sort of books did children read? Most every child owned a Bible. They weren't allowed to read anything else. There were a few books written for children, but described not to commit sinister behavior, and what the punishments were. Who are the two girls that became "bewitched?" Abigail Williams and Betty Parris were the two girls that supposedly became "bewitched".
