I have a friend who's ex husband is a Jehovah's Witness and they don't believe in celebrating birthdays or Christmas. So their son is somewhat caught in the middle. Of course he enjoys the birthdays etc with his mom. I think that his dad is accepting more that he is allowed to have parties with his mom. It is sad, although there is not much that anyone can do about it.

But this poor little boy it must be hard.
In school when they have assemblies his mother comes to take him out, when it’s a birthday he doesn’t go in.
And when it was Christmas last year she cane to pick him up when they were singing carols, he had to sit out when the children were making crackers and cards!
He is sad and I think that maybe the parent is going over the top!
His friend gets really upset when he can’t go to birthdays or wonders why he does not get an invite.
Does anyone else think this is wrong!
