I spoke of this before. For over a year now, one of my son's best friends is a Jehovah's Witness. I never was freaked out about it or worried about my son being influenced. And my son told him that I used to be.
That said, I've spoken to him from time to time. Doctrine only vaguely because I don't think he really knows the intracies of the doctrine and it would go right over his head. He's only 13.
He's a member of a Spanish congregation. One day I asked if they treated the Spanish congregation like second class citizens like they did where I was from. Giving them the worst meeting times and days, the English speaking one controls everything, etc. To which he thought and said I was spot on. And that it's not right, we're supposed to all be equal.
Eventually, at one point, he decided he didn't want to be a JW anymore. And supposedly talked to the elders about that. He also gets in non-physical fights with his dad a lot. IDK if they're JW related or not.
Either it's the congregations down here, or things have changed a lot. Or maybe it's just the Spanish Congregations, but even when he was a JW, he's different from JWs where I was growing up. Their family is very materialistic. He has all the latest up-to-date gadgets (iphone, ipad, laptop) and expensive tennis shoes and athletic clothes. He's had several girlfriends. At 13? When I was a kid, JWs didn't even date until they were getting near 18 and ready to marry. And I don't think his latest is even a JW. And what's with telling your elders you don't want to be a JW? I don't know how his dad reacted, he hasn't talked about that. My dad would have locked me in the house until I decided that I wanted to be a JW again. And what's more, he still hangs out with my son, knowing I'm both an ex-JW and atheist/agnostic.
I'm kind of glad to see somebody not go down that path. But according to the way I was raised, he was already off the JW path anyway.
