I haven't given my son any specific input. When we discuss religion/spirituality, I provide input from a wide arrange of beliefs, usually prefaced with "Well, so and so has this view..." and then we discuss it. Mostly I want to hear his thoughts, and if he has none to encourage him to find some.
He is quick to say things that are outrageous. And I am quick to counter with a requirement that he inform himself before his next outburst.
To be fair to the discussion, I am pretty sensitive personally to the subject, being raised a JW there is no getting out of it unscathed. You will lose your family if you decide to leave the organization. There is no getting around that.
Family members of mine will have nothing at all to do with me, for no other reason than the fact I willingly left the religion of my own accord.
