On page nine of the 1994 printing of the "Advancement Policies and
Procedures Committee Guide" BSA publication #33088 it states under the
heading "Qualifications of Counselors" : "An approved merit badge counselor
may counsel any Scout, including his or her own son, ward or relative.
This being said I still try to steer my own son to other counselors
to avoid any apperance of impropriety, and have only counseled him in a
group setting when another counselor was unavailible.
