As a result, they are often overlooked but this leaves them feeling lonely, rejected and isolated. They spend much time in these kinds of activities: Daydreaming Fantasizing Reading Watching TV Playing video games Studying lots Playing in their room Play ‘pretend’ behind the sofa or drapes Building things with Lego or a similar toy Hanging out at the library, playground or other place away from home Every child does some of these, but for the lost Child, they excel at being ‘out of sight’ and end up being ‘out of mind’. This child expects nothing and wouldn’t know how to make his or her wants known if they could identify them.The conundrum is they get what they want but that result leaves them feeling empty. Their teachers try to get them to participate more in class. Ironically, their disconnection from their family and themselves leaves them without knowledge of what they want or what is reasonable to expect from life and relationships.
Jehovah's Witnesses may object and say they have gotten away with doing some of the things on this list. The rules are not quite as important as loyalty to the organization.
The purpose of this role is to hide from the chaos, condlict and stress of their family.
As a result they hide – often in plain sight, but hiding never the less.
The last thing a Jehovah's Witness wants to do is get in trouble with the organization or be called in for a 'judicial committee hearing'.
In an effort to stay out of trouble, some Jehovah's Witness like to blend in and not be noticed.
