I am with you, Pale. I don't even think of my "mother" as "my mother".... she is just another person.
JW's do not even encourage a close 'family' relationship if all are IN the Borg..... it is all about :
*studying for the meetings, going to the meetings, and field service (good boy, good girl)
*Do you know your books of the bible? (good boy, good girl)
* We are going on vacation and will still go to the meetings.
Some families connect on a personal level, most do not... and that is the simply sad but true part. That is why parents can leave their children behind....
