About The Child:
The future of our children is the future of humanity. But what happens
if our children's future is taken into the hands of the government?

Watchman Cinema's 85-minute documentary The Child: America's Battle
for the Next Generation unveils a pervasive attack against the deep
bond between parent and child in American law and culture. Parents
have traditionally been recognized as having the insight and
responsibility to make the right decisions for their children. But a
new wave is gathering force among lawmakers, judges, government
authorities, and international activists: the belief that parents
should not have the final say in the upbringing and education of their

What does this mean for America? It means that parents' rights and
responsibilities on behalf of their children are gradually being taken
over by the government. It means that parents have less and less
freedom to opt their children out of sexual education in public
school, make medical decisions for their children, or teach their
children their most deeply held religious beliefs. It means that
parents are being prosecuted and even arrested when their choices
conflict with what government authorities think is in the best
interests of their children. It also means that children can no longer
trust that their interests and security will be represented by their
parents, who know and love them.

But a growing group of parents, legislators, legal experts, doctors,
and child and family advocates are fighting back. To defend the
child-parent bond, they are lobbying for something unprecedented: a
Parental Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. This diverse
coalition of concerned citizens crosses party and religious lines.

The Child presents a sweeping and sobering picture of the threats
against the child-parent bond in America, along with what we can do to
protect this fundamental relationship. Weaving together in-depth
interviews of judges, lawyers, pediatricians, and legislators with
firsthand accounts from families who have been devastatingly impacted
by the anti-parent trend, this important film makes the case for a
Parental Rights Amendment. In the words of parenting expert John
Rosemond, this is "a cause that protects the liberty of every
