"In times like these, sometimes a little sacrifice is necessary. Many children sacrifice their childhood for the betterment of the world."
No kid should ever have to sacrifice their childhood, willingly or otherwise on behalf of this world or any other for that matter.
"As long as he is not being forced, I say let him follow the path he feels is best for him."
I suppose we all need to walk our own path in this reality but how does a 12 year old know what's best, intelligent or other wise?
"Some of our greatest minds forfeited their childhood to follow their dreams. If he is this knowledgeable at 12 years old, I would say it's reasonable
for him to make his own decisions. IMO."
Some of our greatest minds realized there dreams and achievements because of there ability to look at things from a child like perspective. You are a
child for a short time, not a long time and the world makes you grow up fast enough these days!
I say run with it as far as you can.
And if the wee dude is intelligent as he seems i'm sure he will grow to avoid politics and religion like the plague!
