Claxton Dongís novel Save Our Star shows a future where "kids [...] get to make their own choices about things. Like where to live" to begin with, and they donít always choose to leave their parents. The twelve-year-old narrator says "I know lots of kids who moved into dorms by the time they were ten and have hardly seen their parents since. Well, I know a few kids like that." but also "My parents and I are very close—Iíve never even lived in a dorm, except for a week or two on vacation." So it seems that at least in fiction, whether a child may control his own life and whether he "divorces" his parents might be two separate questions.
