In all fairness, I don't think I can give an honest answer because I am not a parent. However, trying to put myself in the shoes of a parent, I imagine if the child can look me in the eye like an adult and tell me this is his or her future, then I imagine I would would reluctantly let him or her go.

You know what, because of a loss in my life, the reluctance would be very very high, but I wouldn't stand in the way of any child of mine who is has proven him or herself a mature grown person, regardless of the age number. Everyone needs to find his or her place in the world...

But like I said, I am not a parent, so I will never know unless/until I am in such a situation...
