"What's in your head, in your head
Zombie" from Zombie by The Cranberries
It appears it's the government ... well, they want to be in your child's head at the very least.
Who knows best, the parent or the bureaucrats and elected officials?
The push to have universal mental health screenings of all teens in the US is increasing. The opinions of the screener become the permanent record of the child. Consider signing a petition to let Congress know that there are limits to government interventionism. In addition, call or write you representatives and tell them to stop this nonsense.
Old English common law guaranteed that "a man's home is his castle." Pressure groups via government interventions crossed that threshold years ago, and now they are looking to enter the cranial cavity. Enough already. It's time to reread the Declaration of Independence and Constitution one more time.
As a parent, you have the legal right to request a preview of any survey your child will be asked to take at school. Exercise that right.
