My favorite bit of fire and brimstone is from the Puritan minister Jonathan Edwards' sermon "Sinners in the Hand of an Angry God." Here's a portion of it: The God that holds you over the pit of hell, much as one holds a spider, or some loathsome insect over the fire, abhors you, and is dr...

Kids like me. They sense that the respect is mutual which makes them want to listen without me having to be a stern grownup.

I've heard people frequently complain about the younger generation (whichever one it happens to be from Chaucer's time to the present) as far as being lazy, immoral, less capable, etc. Kids are just pushing back. The most I would've done is an eye roll. If I was especially cranky, it would've been g...

Childbirth can be really traumatic and can certainly cause PTSD. It's something that should be given more attention. In some ways, I think my birthing experience compounded the PTSD I already had. Both my son and I almost died (the moments when I thought I'd lost him were some of the worst in my lif...

Children often don't tell. I was wondering if they come in contact with people outside the church, like teachers, who might be trained to recognise when something is off? Do you know of any investigation actually taking place around your parts? I forgot to answer your first question! Teachers are t...

Thank you for the information and fingers crossed for future change! Yeah, something that troubles me is that I, personally, know of several cases (and some of the people involved) which actually happened. There are other situations in which, looking back years later, I wonder if there was somethin...

How does this work, Twilightprincess, I'm only somewhat familiar with JW and not so much with American law? So I understand that members of the church and priests etc are not required by law to report, so they obviously don't do it. Are the children going to school? What happens if somebody else re...

We don't all need them. I don't, and I've found therapy beneficial. I'm not refuting your experience. But possibly, whatever answers you gave your therapist happened to match the ones he/she wanted from you. You may not have realized you were giving "right" answers, but you did. So he/she...
