Know before I say anything the title might make go like ''What?Are you going to say that its bad for a younger person to be friends with a older one'' No not at all I think its a good thing that a kid should have at least one older person they are friends with.
Now,I dont think young people should not try and talk to some one older than them or become friends like I said.But to me it seems more like a cover up for the watchtower because a lot of young people when they can most will likey want to get out and leave.Now to me all the time when I see a congregation there are more older people than younger.Young people mostly want to have a friends there age,but that's hard most family's say ''We dont want to have kids in this system.''Which leaves a low amount of kids in a congregation.
What I'm saying here is that not all congregations have 12,13,16,5,6 year old kids so kids that age dont have many friends to start out with. So I see the hole thing on making friends with older ones and you should be talking to older ones more as a cover up to that problem.
I might be wrong about this hole thing but I wanted to talk about,as some one who cant really have friends because there is no one my age I could really talk to.
