The Witnesses are not special. There are many, many groups out there who behave morally as the JWs would define it [and on that note, as you are leaving the religion, you really need to discover for yourself what moral behavior is. Some things aren't all black and white].
Personally, my parents were pretty liberal for Jehovah's Witnesses. My dad was inactive for most of my life, and my mom was just struggling to raise two boys basically on her own. Despite that, though, I spent most of my developmental years terrified, depressed, and suicidal. The inundation of threats of death and destruction and fear which Jehovah's Witnesses get is not healthy for any child, and there is no sure way that you can both participate in the culture and protect them from those influences.
By the way, my experiences outside of the religion have been extremely difficult, but I have never been happier in my life even with all my problems.
Research other religious groups, and even religion itself. Make an informed decision, and don't let the "we're God's chosen people who are different than everyone else" mentality affect your decision.
