Choice of therapies

Families have a right to choose therapy and counselling according to their own religious principles.  No teenager should be forced to attend therapy sessions but they should be given the opportunity to learn why their families have chosen the sexual attitudes of their private faith.  Teenagers are often confused about sexuality,  and counselling can help them understand what it all means now and in the future.
