oppose the regulation of counseling

Parents are the primary educators and care givers of their children, responsible for their upbringing and instilling moral values in them according to their religious beliefs.  Please oppose the imposition of regulations over what counselors may discuss with children.  Unelected government officials and outsiders with a political agenda should not be able to regulate the content and conduct of counseling, or decide what parents may or may not do regarding their children.
