  1. Go Zen has exactly what qualifications to play with the minds of children? It's obvious from multiple sources that ops like this have agendas that can be, at best, destructive to the children they "consel". Pedophila is trying to become "mainstream" is just one point. Another is that children don't understand all that much and worry about it. It is part of growing up, getting through those times. I can rember raging at my parents for not bending to my will, and my own kids, for similar reasons.

    Maybe parents need to do exactly that, and for $416, what possible benefit can the supposed savants provide a useful service?

    I think someone needing work who is connected to the City Council is running this op. This is bullshit.
