At what age does an individual gain the right to associate freely? For example, could parents bar contact with volunteers from a LBGTQ group to a child if the parents were (by ideal/simplified hypothetical case) in no way harming the child?
I think this could apply to religious groups as well, but looking through the family law of a few states, it might also represent a special case. Could parents bar their child from associating with religious groups (or a-religious) they oppose?
Is there a responsibility of any such group to get parental consent?
Going back to the two examples: Let's say an LGBTQ group was having a non-privileged support group meeting (no professional or licensed therapists present) and a local mosque was having a youth prayer meeting. Would ether group be required or in someway at risk for failure to check whether minor X, whose parents informed the group they do not want their child in attendance, was present?
Does the risk change if the group is doing outreach at a public school (assume religious group using their access correctly by not obstructing or using resources)?
I assume this gets into the weeds of family law which can vary widely in different states. If there were some archetype examples, I would appreciate it.
