My JW Mom Dumped Me in Foster Care When I Renounced Her Religion

From birth, Witness children are expected to remain quiet and attentive at their parents’ sides; toys or crayons are denounced from the stage. To be properly trained, children of all ages must pay attention for the full two hours.

At the age of 13, I flat-out refused to attend another meeting. The Elders, my mother informed me, announced from the stage that I was a “bad association,” which, in Jehovah’s Witness speak, pretty much meant excommunication. I celebrated.


  1. So sorry to hear about your mom being so brain washed and cold hearted. This is why I think that this religion is so dangerous. Psychological abduction is stealing your mental freedom and ability to make rational choices.
