    Latest advice for jw parents: if your kids get disfellowshipped, fight the urge to blame yourself.

    Yes, great advice. If your clueless, underage child is struggling in life, don't blame yourself, stop thinking about it and move on. Everyone has to carry their own load after all.

    That is a switch, they used to push the crap that if they get DFed or fall away from the cult you did not raise them right. LOL What a bunch of douche nozzles.

    The article speaks as though leaving them, is the same as Leaving the family... Not the case, always.

    Support the decision. Disfellowshipping is part of Jehovah’s arrangement. His loving correction is in the best interests of everyone, including the wrongdoer. (Read Hebrews 12:11.) Any negative comments about the way a disciplinary matter was handled by the elders have likely been initiated by someone who did not mention details that would put the wrongdoer in a bad light. We simply do not have all the facts. It is wise, then, to trust that the elders who took judicial action made every effort to follow Scriptural principles and to judge “for Jehovah.”​—2 Chron. 19:6

    Surely Hebrews 12 : 11 is talking about God's discipline, not man's.

    Though of course to them it's the same thing .

    If only the WT would suggest to read verse 10 as well as verse 11 is a logical followup sentence:

    For they disciplined us for a short time according to what seemed good to them, but he does so for our benefit so that we may partake of his holiness

    So, all those who return after being DF'ed, can now partake?

    The best thing parents can do for their children is to NOT raise them as JWs. Leave the damn religion and give them a chance in life.

    If they left its the Governing bodies fault people just have a limit for bull crap lies.

    Watchtower - Force your children to become a baptized publisher of the good news.

    Watchtower - If your kid gets DFed, that's on them. Don't blame yourself.

    Idiot Parent - Son, take this gun and start robbing liquor stores. You better do it if you want to live in this house!

    Idiot Parent - Oh, gee! My son was just sentenced to 50 years in the penitentiary for armed robbery. Best not blame myself.

    If the don't find fault with the parents then why do they "review" the qualifications of a parent who serves in any "privileged" position?

  • Overrated

    Watchtower 's advice on anything is stupidity at it's best. Run away, get out of this crap.
