Most JW parents & JW's are just overwhelmed with life itself. Always in an exasperated mode, whether with or without children. I call it having the vapors. Many of them have a hard time just dealing with everyday life, always waiting for paradise, never really enjoying the here & now. Oh yes, they pretend to enjoy themselves. Just look at their sad eyes. Many laugh but it never reaches their eyes.
I agree, JW parents don't do anything by instinct only making the babies....they research everything to see Jehovah's view...aka: They haven't a clue to what they are doing. Can't even keep the child quiet during the meetings, we know that's hard because kids will be kids...they don't discipline their kids in front of the friends that's why the kids act up, cuz they know parents won't do anything.
Many JW's need a manual just to live life, so that's where the bible fits in for them. They are just basically to lazy to think. Just open a book & it's all laid out for you. But that goes for the religion itself, you don't have to think, it's all there for you.
Parents today are just different whether witnesses or not. They stress their kids out by keeping them busy so the parents don't have to interact with them...soccer lessons,practice, baseball, after school stuff...whatever, anything not to be with their kids, but to the parent they are doing the right thing...see I'm good to my kids...but no time for them...that's why some kids do what they please...parents don't pay them no mind, they don't know what they are doing or where they are going...that's how some slip through the cracks and end up shooting up schools...plain old ignoring their kids...we fight for pro-life to not abort the children but when they get here, we ignore them..
Parents are too into themselves today....JW parents are lazy because the org. makes them lazy and they want their kids...
