New Regulations for Virginia Counselors

Children under the age of 18 expect and need the help of their parents and teachers/counselors for guidance.  We were created by God as either a boy or a girl.  There are no other options. God did not make a mistake when He created us. Counselors should not accept what a child "feels" about their sexual identity but give them solid, normal counseling on how to celebrate their gender. Virginia should not force counselors to "counsel" what is not normal.
