From the mouth of babes
Exactly what I was thinking Mrs. Jones!
Thanks for your comments everyone!
Fuge: I was already way into my fade before I had kids. My six year old has the most exposure. He has gone to 3 memorials, some funerals and a wedding. My mother was his biggest influence for all things JW. She has passed away a few years ago now which makes not going much easier. He remembers the hall as the 'Dora place', because we took him to a memorial when he was 3, we fed him Dora candies to keep him quiet. lol Which makes me think your kids remember for a long time. But remembering and caring are totally different. It seems like once kids see that you don't care about something they, lose interest quickly.
We talk a lot about apostate stuff at my house, so they know the lingo. But my husband has never been a witness, so the kids have a totally normal exposure as well.
My three year old doesn't have any memories. I am glad to say he has been to the hall one time as a baby, for my moms funeral.
What's funny is I took the 6 year old uptown after I posted and we drove past the hall.He pointed to it and asked me if that was the church where they don't like magic. I just said, "Yup, thats the one", he said "Hmmmp", and then dropped it . Thank-you governing body! What an great way to keep my kid from ever wanting to go there.
