Everyone knows a Jehovah's Witness or had them knock at their door. And it's well known that they do not celebrate Christmas, and will not have a blood transfusion. But not a lot is known or understood about JW children's lives - the conflicting advice they have to deal with and the fears and expectations they live under throughout their young lives. That's why this book is vital for all teachers, social workers and counsellors, indeed, anyone who works with children. The chances are that one day, if not already, you will be assigned a child to assist who is being brought up by Witness parents. This comprehensive guide will provide you with a basic knowledge of the structure and language of the Watchtower Society, information about the safeguarding policies, procedures and practices of the religion. What happens in a baptised JW child's life can have long lasting, sometimes devastating effects and if those in a nurturing position can understand they can give more targeted help.
