We all have different opinions on this. For me I am with Matt although I do agree that it is the childs choice to do it. The main reason why many do it though is because they have nothing left to live for.
But just think if it were your children then you would propably stop them and would think it was sick.
So I agree with both views in a way.

My kids? No, i'm not that stupid - too many hard knocks to the head is bad for anyone's brain, let alone a child's.
My family are all academics, so I wont be encouraging them to fight competitively as it would [censored] up their most powerful weapon.

Uh-huh.

Yeah.

Children of that age shouldn't be making that kind of choice. I doubt these kids had a choice anyway.
