3. Madonna and her husband, Guy Ritchie, share custody of their son, Rocco (age 15). Rocco spent a large part of the end of 2015 touring with his mom. After the tour was over, he went to spend some time with his father in London, but was supposed to return to NY, to be with his mother, right before Christmas. Rocco, however, was allegedly tired of his mother and wanted to stay with his father, so he did not get on the plane. In response, Madonna took the matter to a judge who had the teenager court ordered back to the US. At the age of 15, do you think the child should have a say in where he spends his time?

I think as long as they can speak, their opinion should be considered, but the parents should have the ultimate choice
