Fortunatly my mother had never hit for not going to meeting, only when I was not enough calm during them. But I remember saying I was sick often even if I was not, my mother as always been too protective on that so I missed several meeting and school days by faking.
Your going to the meetings whether you like it or not!
Thank you all for your participation and in showing others who might be considering studying with a JW, that child abuse goes on in the Watchtower organization in many ways!
Not only is there physical abuse, but when JW children are forbidden to play with other children, or go out for sports, go to dances, or participate in some of the normal classroom programs, all contributes to the other types of abuse also.
