    I will definitely convince him/her to turn themselves in and if they can't do so willingly then yes I would.

    As a mother, I am all about protecting my children.

    As a citizen, I am about lawful obedience.

    Honestly, I would have to look at the individual case.........

    did my daughter " kill" as a self defense act, or did she kill because she was cold blooded and destructive?

    Yes, to a mother, it matters.

    You need to question those, who give you an unqualified, "YES" answer.

    I agree with onegoodwoman that it would depend greatly on the details of the death. If I saw it as self defense, or a justified death, I would more than likely try to aid them legally while they were hidden and or out of the country.

    it would depend on why they did it. if it was just because they felt like it then i would get them to turn themselves in but if it was because someone had seriously deserved it, not a chance.

    Yes.  God forbid they do something like that, but sin is sin, no matter your relation to that person.  They must know the consequences.

    If I was going to live true to my life's philosophy and spiritual beliefs, I would have to say yes.  I would turn him or her in.  If a murder is committed, then the murderer has to answer for it.  If it was self-defense or a there was some other reasonable circumstances, then the court must decide. No one has the right to take a human life, regardless if it is your own son or daughter. To hide them or lie for them is only committing yet another crime.

    If my child committed murder and it was not in self defense and they acted out of pure hatefulness, I would not allow them to be in my life. I would pray for their soul but they could not be involved in my life. I might send them a card now and then but they would not be welcome to my home or know where i live.

    I have never allowed people who do wrong to mix within my life, this brings high blood pressure, worrying, stress, and i do not need it. Althought it may sound mean and insentive i would have to dismiss this child.
