It's in the Dutch KM too.
But since they told us on the circuit assembly that 8-year old kids are (quote:) NOT too young to make the important decision to be baptized....I am not surprised anymore... (The br. said, addressing 8 year old children: "Did you already ask your father: When can I be baptized?"
By the way its sooo funny ...an elder told us last week that he missed our kids in KH. He heard of our friends daughter, who is 14 y/o now. Her parents let het make her own decision to visit KH or not. What did the elder tell us:
"Of course it can't be possible that children of 13 or 14 years old decide for themselves wether they visit the meetings or not..."
So let me summarise :
8 years old, a child can make decision to be baptized into an organisation for life.
12 years old, a child can make a decision about health items, and say NO to blood. (or yes...but they don't want to hear that one, of course)
14 years old and a child is NOT supposed to have a personal opinion about meetings in the KH. ???!!! Where's the sense in that?
