This young JW lady was shunned by her parents since she was 18 or 19 years old. She was befriended by the older man that you see in the picture. Perhaps you recognize him? They did a lot of things together while her parents shunned her. After more than 25 years, they still do.
In case you are wondering what is wrong with your teenager; JW kids act out in harmful ways because:
1. They see the WT history of false prophecies and unlike you, cannot live a lie.
2. They experience the robotic, automoton nature that many JW's are known for and crave basic human affection and love which is missing in many JW families.
3. Some kids are naturally imagnitive, impressionable and suffer psychologically from all the blood, gore and armageddon images that you forced them to digest in their early years and just want a break from all the panic & negativity.
4. They want to stop feeling guilty for participating in basic social activities that YOU shamed and prevented them from doing, which made them freaks among their peers and objects of derision. All your made up rules which ARE NOT IN THE BIBLE, only convinced them of your insanity and manipulation, which you unknowingly or not seek to pass on. Your kids want and need YOU, not your impossible unbiblical rules.
Please wake up. We know that you love your children. Do not let a group of jackass mad-men rob your children of one of the greatest assets that they have - you, their parents.
