I want to tell my old brother that he should give the freedom for his son to
be friends with, like or dislike, whoever he wants to.
What freedom is that? Is there one word/expression that I could use.
I asked one of my friends and he said you could say: Freedom of amity and enmity
I Like it a lot, is there a better expression? It doesn't have to be commonly used, as long as it is correct and has a nice ring.
Edit: I'm looking for an expression that is appropriate for freedom of liking whoever he wants. - not only being friends with whoever he wants.
