4. I honestly think there is something "off" about the parents

Kaplan bailed them out financially when their business failed and they were separated from their Amish community. Maybe the fact that they had lived their lives up to that point in such a closed-off, closely-knit community made the real world like another planet for them. I can't imagine that they thought Kaplan having sex with their *children* was normal unless they came to it with some warped world-view. OTOH, there are reports of sexual abuse of girls among the Amish (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/survivor-speaks-out-against-amish-rape-culture-ahead_us_581e7b02e4b0334571e09cfd) so maybe it did seem kind of normal.

I'm with you, though. How could parents do such a thing?
