elitists need to respect parents

Parents love their children more than idealogues trying to control children who don't belong to them. Idealogues don't belong teaching parents about how to raise their children which is actually an unwanted form of counseling! If the child is a minor, then by definition it belongs to parents on how to help their children and the counseling they believe is best. Stop acting like pressure groups know better than the people who have been helped by therapy. Just because some people are not helped doesn't mean we rob others of their free choice to get help  from whom they want. Stop robbing Virginians of free choice.
