Children should be allowed to dream

Q: Our 16-year-old son is talking of going to a local community college after high school and living with one of his friends. He says he needs to find a job soon so he can prove to his friend's mom that he is hard-working. I was so shocked I just listened and haven't said how I feel about this whole thing.
