    I feel sort of the same way about interns and volunteers, and especially program participants in a social services agency. There's a bright line - not even a hint of sexual behavior or harassement toward interns, volunteers and especially not on program participants.  And it's safer for everyone concerned to have the rules clear, have the door to the office open, set up systems and transparency to assure that there's no possibillity of anything like that happening.  Sadly, it still sometimes happens and I had to deal with an issue with a volunteer sexually harassing a program participant not long ago.  Zero tolerance, immediate reporting... only way to handle it.  

    It makes sense for parents to have systems in place, just as it makes sense for legal and social services programs to have systems in place, and there's no insult in sticking to those policies.
