Got a reference for that?

https://www.jw.org/en/publications/magazines/w20130815/disfellowshipped-child-seating-location/

 "....parents may even study the Bible with a disfellowshipped minor who continues to live with them." 

"When it comes to Kingdom Hall seating arrangements, it would seem reasonable that a disfellowshipped minor could also quietly sit with his parents." 

"What, though, if a disfellowshipped child no longer lives with his parents? Would this circumstance make a difference? In the past, this magazine has clearly stated the proper attitude that a Christian should strive to maintain when it comes to association with a disfellowshipped relative who is not living at home. *"

I did not succeed in searching for sitting in car/KH rule. But from this (and more if went to past WT articles) is obvious how they have various rules and changes of rules through time. :)

I just watch one video, and moderator pointed on one significant detail. Connected with WT Chart of Significant Dates. Book published in 1966. ("Life Everlasting-in freedom in sons of God") 

In fact this Chart shows strong WT belief, how past looked like and how Future will look. I just copy/paste (3) THREE LAST DATES from Chart.  IT is very interesting their interpretations on two main  world "kings" and possibility of  WW III. And then 1975 culmination with wording END OF 6000 MAN'S EXISTENCE.  (in double talking it can be also understood as End of human existence :))))

What is next DATE?? END OF 7000 years, and JW of those past days (1960s)  knew very well what that can mean, in fact. This Last 1000 years of 7th day is in fact PARADISE aka GOD'S KINGDOM, 1000 years ruling over the world.  

Skipping  from autumn of 1975 to autumn 2975 shows that very well. Nothing in connection to "prophecies" that must take place according to WT interpretations. Events (fulfilled bible prophecies)  are missing from 1975 to future. We all know how many "bible prophecies" WT has been counted and explained until 1966 when this book was published. But no one was mentioned. BUT WT was still put one future EVENT-  the FULFILLMENT OF YEAR AS FINISHED DATE FOR 1OOO REIGN. End of 1000 year Christ kingdom ended in 2975. In those days and i believe similar is until today, one interpretation is same; 7 day of God's rest ending after 7000 years of man's existence.  This is prove of WT calculation about 1975. 

Quote from JWorg said; "And, since the seventh day has been continuing for thousands of years, it may reasonably be concluded that each of the six creative periods, or days, was at least thousands of years in length."  https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/1200001061

According to this, not changed view-yet, WT interpretations is/was that 1 creation day was 7000 long. So, by that and other interpretation on Bible it is significant to see that WT IN FACT PROMOTED VIEW HOW Jesus Kingdom would/will come in 1975 because His Kingdom lasting 1000 years and by that Completing 7th day of Bible terminology as WT interpret.  

Quote from JWORG;  However, this statement is not made regarding the seventh day, on which God proceeded to rest, indicating that it continued. (Ge 2:1-3) Also, more than 4,000 years after the seventh day, or God’s rest day, commenced, Paul indicated that it was still in progress. At Hebrews 4:1-11 he referred to the earlier words of David (Ps 95:7, 8, 11) and to Genesis 2:2 and urged: “Let us therefore do our utmost to enter into that rest.” By the apostle’s time, the seventh day had been continuing for thousands of years and had not yet ended. The Thousand Year Reign of Jesus Christ, who is Scripturally identified as “Lord of the sabbath” (Mt 12:8), is evidently part of the great sabbath, God’s rest day. (Re 20:1-6) This would indicate the passing of thousands of years from the commencement of God’s rest day to its end. The week of days set forth at Genesis 1:3 to 2:3, the last of which is a sabbath, seems to parallel the week into which the Israelites divided their time, observing a sabbath on the seventh day thereof, in keeping with the divine will. (Ex 20:8-11)  

CHART QF SIGNIFICANT DATES FROM MAN'S CREATION TO 7000 A.M.

1966 Threat of World War III grows more ominous as between "king of the north" and the "king of the south." (Dan. 11: 5-7, 40) Expansion of organization of Jehovah's Christian witnesses continues, and international series of "God's Sons of Liberty" District Assemblies are scheduled to begin on June 22, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Book Life Everlasting-in Freedom of the Sons of God to be released Saturday, June 25.1966

      “Nourishing Spiritual Food”? 
      I cannot advocate the website listed at the end of this short video, as I haven’t gone there.  Also I do not see verification that the money from the sale of houses, properties and goods was given to the Watchtower at that time period.  But I will not dismiss the large possibility.  What is important about this video, is hearing how 1975 was truly proclaimed from the source; quite contrary to how the 2017 convention presented it: 
      “…you see, back then, some were looking to a certain date as signifying the end of this old system of things. A few, even went so far as selling their homes and quitting their jobs. (km 5/1974)"
      “But the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.” 
       You may say in your heart, “How shall we know the word which Yahweh has not spoken?”  When a prophet speaks in Yahweh’s name, if the thing doesn’t follow, nor happen, that is the thing which Yahweh has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You shall not be afraid of him.              Deut 18:20-22
      “This is what the LORD of Hosts says: "Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you. They are making you worthless. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the LORD's mouth.”  Jer 23:16
      “Behold, I am against the prophets, says Yahweh, who use their tongues, and say, He says. 32 Behold, I am against those who prophesy lying dreams, says Yahweh, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their vain boasting: yet I didn’t send them, nor commanded them; neither do they profit this people at all, says Yahweh.”  Jer 23:31-32
      If we claim to read God's Word and live by it, then God's Word should help us distinguish truth from lies.  Matt 3:10

      Minister of the Jehovah's Witnesses aid in the baptism of some of the 524 converts to the faith in a pool set up at Belmont Park Race Track. The baptism is a high-light of the four-day Witnesses Divine Sovereignty assembly, which ends tomorrow. August 08, 1975.

      1888 "In this chapter we present the Bible evidence proving that the full end of the times of the gentiles, i.e., the full end of their lease of dominion, will be reached in A.D. 1914; and that the date will be the farthest limit of the rule of imperfect men. And be it observed, that if this is shown to be a fact firmly established by the Scriptures, it will prove; Firstly, that at that date the Kingdom of God, for which our Lord taught us to pray, saying, Thy Kingdom come, will obtain full, universal control, and that it will then be set up, or firmly established, in the earth, on the ruins of present institutions." (The Time Is At Hand, 1888, p. 76, 77)
       
      1968 "'Adam Created At Close Of 'Sixth Day' Are we to assume from this study that the battle of Armageddon will be all over by the autumn of 1975, and the long-looked-for thousand-year reign of Christ will begin by then? Possibly, but we wait to see how closely the seventh thousand-year period of man's existence coincides with the Sabbath-like thousand-year reign of Christ....It may involve only a difference of weeks or months, not years.' (Watchtower, Aug. 15, 1968, p. 499)

      If the organization did not actually prophesy the end in 1925 and 1975, then how come so many Witnesses left the faith immediately afterwards? ("They lost roughly three-quarters of the movement between 1925 and 1928, then suffered huge losses after 1975, when the end didn't come as they had implied over and over again," said Jim Penton, an ex-Witness who writes entries on Jehovah's Witnesses for the Encyclopedia Americana.)
