I also agree that if the shunning is directed towards a child, the elderly or those with mental illness it is especially bad.
In my case, I was a young adult not raised a JW…so I was able to ‘take it’ 🙄 and knew it was over my job. I shrugged my shoulders and didn’t care. But, for young born-ins who know nothing else, it could be devastating.. The religion should not be allowed to ruin some child’s life.
