The counseling approach could be applied to so many situations including DUI, financal etc Keep in mind that I'm not advocating that for most cases. I'm just curious about why some instances are that way and some aren't. Doesn't seem consistent to me.I'm sure we did...no forgiveness for a financial issues; plenty of chances for failure to rescue...
I'm more baffled if failure to pay taxes is severe, that there can't be financial counseling, like there are corrective action plans for failure to rescue...I'm really curious about that.
