As long as the SCOUTMASTER sends the Scout to his parent as the counselor I
agree with you. However, for anyone else to make that decision is the same
type of violation of policy that you are referring to. Thus, IF a SM feels
that no Scout should be counseled by his parent he is perfectly justified in
NOT sending any Scouts to their parents.
