How do you feel about kids deciding on their own treatment options...?

How do you feel about kids deciding their own treatment options or having the right to decide to stop treatments? At what age is a child able to decide he or she does not want to continue painful and dreaded treatment options?
Check out the following website for an article which addresses these questions. Make sure you scroll through to read the comments and make one of your own if you have a strong opinion.
Parents who have not had to deal with a serious illness may have a different take on the questions than a parent whose child has a terminal illness or needs to make a critical choice in their future medical treatments. It is certainly something to think about and discuss with family members regardless of how you feel.
Check it out and let me know what you think.
