I could understand a parent refusing to finance such a course - or refusing to stand guarantee (if such guarantee is needed) for the loan that the student might need to join the course.

But "ALLOW" ??!!!

Would you perhaps get a police officer to prevent the daughter/son from taking the course? You'd need a court order first, of course.

Ah, the crosses that we parents have to bear (apart from having brought these children into this world in the first place)!
