I am a divorced ExJW with 3 children who live with their JW dad. They are 16, 13 and 11. I am worried about the fact that they were raised as JW's and are now questioning if they want to make this their life or not. While that is not a bad thing I am worried because they were IMMERSED in this religion from the time they were born until I left the religion about 3 years ago. Their father is d/fed but trying to make a come-back...with a new "worldly" wife. After seeing the hypocricy of their father and the new life I am living they are questioning the restrictions placed on them by the religion.
My concern is how they will adjust to the world. Will they totally go off the deep end? Without the guidelines and principals they now have what will they do? Where do they go to find the guidelines they need?
For the record I have never read the forum or posted here before. I friend of mine who posts here recommended that I post this and see what happens. She said I might be able to get some good advice from people who have experienced the same type of situation.
