    Friends are chosen and families are inherited. All members of my family are JWs.

    I am not dfd but have been fading for two years. In the long term i think it is better to keep that line

    of civility open between family members. Choose your battles very carefully. Make sure you are not

    rebelling against yourself.

    Don't stoop to their level. There's nothing more important than family. Let your kids have a grandmother. And let yourself have a mother. You don't know what you've got, until it's gone.

    When I realized my JW relatives were practicing fractional shunning on me I was angry and I was determined to stop it. I certainly had and have mixed feelings about confronting them about it. The fractional shunning has certainly stopped.

    I realized that I had been giving them free access to my wife and children and one by one the JW's were seducing them and teaching them that I was bad association. They had my wife and two of my 4 sons factional shunning me before I put a stop to it.

    Now, I would never let a practicing JW within 100 miles of my family.
