Joe and Amy joined us on the air today for their Great Mate Debate. They are a religious family and their 15-year-old daughter, Courtney, has expressed interest in no longer going to church. Amy says that Courtney is old enough to make her own decisions. She thinks Courtney is at an age that is conducive to self-exploration and discovering new things. She wants her daughter to be able to realize for herself that faith is an important aspect of life. Joe says that as long as Courtney is in their house, she will go to church. He believes that faith is a very important aspect in their young daughter's life and doesn't think that letting her do what she wants would be beneficial.
Which takes precedence, a young woman’s choice or her family’s beliefs?
