Is a four year old wise enough to make life changing decisions?


Hypothetical: You have a four year old girl who has a chronic respiratory illness and has to go to the hospital for a routine check-up/shot. She cries and says she does not want to go. Do you keep her home, respecting her wishes, knowing that she will surely die? This scenario actually did happen. The mother is set on assisting the child in suicide so she wouldn't suffer. Thoughts?

    Yikes we seem to agree!

    Personally, I have always said that I want to die exactly when I should, not a second earlier, not a second later!
